Uasin Gishu Deputy Governor Hon Daniel Chemno Wednesday held talks with visiting Belgian Development Agency delegation – Enabel, who paid a courtesy call at his county office.
Eldoret, the capital city of Uasin Gishu is a fast-growing hub in the western Kenya region. The town is rapidly expanding and as a result, there is pressure on the existing sewerage system as the population increases.
The team which is on a two-day viability study of the town is seeking to partner with the county government to construct proposed wastewater management and treatment plant at Kimumu, a peri-urban suburb of the town. The visiting delegation was led by Grego Probst, accompanied by Sophie Collerte.
Kimumu which has no sewerage collection network currently uses exhausters to ferry wastewater to other treatment plants. This waste management system is way too expensive and threatens the sanitary conditions of the population. Lake Victoria North Water Works Development Agency and Eldoret Water and Sanitation Company are some of the partners in this project.
The DG appreciated the partner, adding that the County guarantees proper management and implementation of projects, with the value of every shilling felt. “At Uasin Gishu County, our commitment to attracting development partners through the provision of friendly conditions means we do not hesitate to assure of efficiency and accountability in the management of resources from our partners.”
CO Mr. Simon Kemei -Water, Environment and Natural resources, Dr. Paul Murgor- MD Eldowas, Jimmy Kemboi Head of Technical Services Eldowas together with James Ngugi and Cleophas Mutoro from LVNWWDA were in attendance.
