, GATUNDU, Kenya, Feb 25 – Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has cautioned county leaders over incitement against projects launched by his government.
Kabogo, who spoke when he opened the Gatundu South modern bus park, says that residents are only interested in development not politics.
“The bus park comes as a relief to Gatundu residents that have had to deal with congestion within the town,” he noted.
Kabogo added that the market will earn revenue and urged the residents to take up the stalls that will be distributed in the coming month.
He called for transparency in allocation of the shops and said the county officials would ensure that only the deserving people got them.
“We are encouraging the youth to fill up the new market with new businesses and to take advantage of the funds provided by both the county and national governments,” he said.
Kabogo who was accompanied by the area MP Moses Kuria said that the county was working to give better living standards to county residents.
He noted that the area has in the recent past received a major boost in the agriculture and livestock businesses owing to the recently commissioned water and abattoir projects.
“The government has set aside Sh95 million for irrigation and greenhouses and it is time residents took up the incentives by the county,” Kabogo, who said that he would work with other leaders to drive the development agenda, revealed.
