Technical officers from the department of water will be deployed to assess the area to ensure the project is successful.
The County boss encouraged residents to take advantage of the favourable climate by embracing agriculture to help elevate their standards of living.
“Very few people from here are engaging in Agriculture. I want to see more people venturing in this profitable venture. I will offer some inputs like manure to assist them improve the soil fertility and increase their yields,” said the governor.
To protect the taxpayers money from unscrupulous employees, Samboja directed the finance and economic planning County Chief Officer Leonard Langat who accompanied him for the launch of the roadworks to embrace cashless system in making payments to the county government services.
