“The exploitation of the tourism site has placed our region so much than it was before devolution” reiterated mandago
Mandago who is also the Noreb chairman added that only few areas are yet to be finalised by the eight County assemblies.
“County assemblies are tasked with passing of legislations to meet the final program of NOREB.It is therefore not a single County issue ” noted the County Chief.
And on matters Agriculture,H.E Mandago asked farmers to make use of the county’s subsidised fertiliser which is now going at sh200 up from the normal price of sh1800.
The Governor assured farmers that hopefully the national government will maintain the consistency of distributing fertiliser to farmers.

“We better request for a supplementary budget that will aid in accomplishing all projects that was commission unlike leaving them stall as a result of lack of funds ” explained H.E Mandago
