Three Cabinet Secretaries have expressed their confidence in Governor Joseph Ole Lenku’s leadership in Kajiado County.
They have asserted that Kajiado had become an important migration hub for the country and therefore its leadership was critical in steering it to handle its unique cosmopolitan nature.
Led by Interior CS Dr. Fred Matiangi’, the CSs who included Mutahi Kagwe (Health) and Keriako Tobiko ( Environment) lauded Governor Lenku’s high-level networking with the national government saying it was fast-tracking development in the County.
During a development tour of ongoing national government projects and a consultative meeting with local leaders, Dr. Matiang’ i said the Governor had put Kajiado on a new map.
“We are happy you have a Governor who knows the importance of respecting all Kenyans and is making Kajiado a home for of us, Am actually a resident of Kajiado me,” said the CS.
Mr. Kagwe said Kajiado had set the pace for other counties in COVID 19 preparedness and said he regularly consulted the Governor on health matters.
” Having recorded the first case of COVID 19 in Ongata Rongai, Kajiado has been on top of things and this is very encouraging,” said Mr. Kagwe.
Mr. Tobiko said a combination of President Kenyatta and Governor Lenku offers the best leadership for the County and called for support of both of them. He castigated those who had started early campaigns and said it was time to work.
The CSs team landed in Kajiado to inspect the construction of the Kajiado-Imaroro road which will be completed by October 20.
Concerns were raised on the destruction of sections of the Low Seal Volume( LSV) road by overloaded sand trucks.
Dr. Matiang’ i ordered officers from the National Government and the County Government to hold a joint meeting and chart a way forward on how to protect the road from destruction.
Dr. Matiang’ i also came to commission the new Oloililai Sub County which will cover areas such as Ng’atataek, Maili Tisa and Namanga. A new Deputy County Commissioner (DCC) was also installed.
The team also met all National Administration officers, including chiefs, and later opinion leaders from the County.
MPs Joseph Manje( Kajiado North), Peris Tobiko ( Kajiado East), Elijah Memusi (Kajado Central) and George Sunkuyia (Kajiado West) were present.
Other local leaders who accompanied Governor Lenku to the meeting with Dr. Matiang’ i was former Governor David Nkedianye, former senator Peter Mositet, former NTSA chief Francis Meja and former Kajiado West MP Moses Ole Sakuda.
