In Summary
  • Mr Kinyanjui has partnered with 17 pyrethrum growing counties in an effort to revive the industry.
  • In Nyandarua, residents say they are yet to feel Governor Francis Kimemia’s presence.

During their campaigns, Nakuru and Nyandarua governors outlined priority areas they would address in their first 100 days in office.

However, many of the pledges still remain just that; promises.

In Nakuru, for instance, Mr Lee Kinyanjui said he would destroy corruption days after assuming office.

The county lost Sh1 billion in revenue in the 2015/16 financial year.
CORRUPTION

Residents are still waiting to see how the governor will end corruption and address other issues, including the huge wage bill.

However, the administration has made some progress, including establishing a task force to address the ailing health industry.

The team, chaired by former Egerton University VC James Tuitoek, was given 30 days to present its findings.

On agriculture, Mr Kinyanjui has partnered with 17 pyrethrum growing counties in an effort to revive the industry.

The devolved government has begun rehabilitating Gioto dumpsite, which was established more than 40 years ago.

Mr Kinyanjui and his deputy Eric Korir toured the area on Wednesday.
