NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 11- Governor Alfred Mutua has called on investors to partner with the Machakos County with the aim of making it a hub of investment and opportunities that will transform the region.

Speaking when he hosted a symposium on Tuesday, Governor Mutua said that the development partners were key in helping his county roll back poverty.

“The world is moving fast and my desire is to see Machakos move at the same speed in terms of development like other developed countries, ” Mutua said, “When I see our mothers and sisters carrying jerrycans of water on their backs like donkeys I am pained. I want to restore the dignity of my people.

The Machakos County government has already launched a Sh2.5 billion water program that will see homes at the village level equipped with piped water. Already, the program of sinking boreholes has begun in all the 70 locations across the county.

During the symposium, Mutua said partners in development were joining Machakos to change the lives of the locals.

He said his government has embarked on an ambitious programme to upgrade and equip hospitals, roads, and other key essential amenities.

Mutua revealed that 40 new community hospitals will be established across the county and urged development partners to chip in by equipping the facilities.

He said Machakos County government through the symposium was committed to fostering links with development partners and investors were welcome to Machakos which he said had the best investment environment in the country.

“As partners I am confident that you will help my government fight poverty and spur development in the county and neighbouring regions,” Mutua said.

He said “the development train in Machakos has already left the station” and was unstoppable.

“That’s why I humbly invited you to come for a conversation with me so that we can share how my government can improve services and projects for our people, ” Mutua added.
