Governor Jackson Mandago had a busy schedule Monday where he inspected ongoing projects in areas across Soy and Moiben Sub-Counties.
As a county chief executive officer, Governor Mandago visited to check on the progress of county-funded projects in the two sub-counties.
The Governor’s visits, mostly unannounced, to facilities are geared at tightening the nut on public servants’ performance and ensuring the public gets to be served.
But cutting to the chase, the Governor, flanked by his Trade Executive Dr. Emily Kogos, visited to check on the progress of Kuinet Market in Soy Sub-County.
During the inspection, the contractor explained the progress of the facility in detail. Governor Mandago, a hands-on man had to cross-check on a number of construction undertakings so far.
My Government as a representative of the people of Uasin Gishu wants nothing but the best quality work,” he said as he toured the Kuinet Market.
Governor Mandago has unswayed vision of mechanizing agriculture for efficiency and an increase in yield. He made a stopover at the Agriculture Machinery Services (AMS), a county machinery section under the Department of Agriculture.
The county government is currently setting up an ultra-modern workshop and training centre. A modern establishment is currently under construction.
At AMS, Governor Mandago mingled with youth who were working at the site. “…so have you known the quantities of cement and sand when making motor?,” Mandago asked one of them as a cordial talk sunk into technical education.
The county boss, a strong believer in technical education, also pegged his inquiry to the government’s program of sponsoring youth to technical institutes. His government is sponsoring youth to undertake technical courses.
The day would end as he inspected the construction of the non-motorised pedestrians’ walkway, a phase two project that will extend towards the University of Eldoret.
