Suba Sub deputy county commissioner Sebastian Okiring has blamed the county government of failing to undertake infrastructural development projects in the region.
Speaking at Magunga hospital during a handing over ceremony of medical equipment worth Sh.1.5 million by a betting company, Okiring regretted that the county government had failed to implement roads, health, and water projects to improve the lives of residents.
“It is almost a decade since the inception of devolution and the residents of this area have barely benefited from the services supposed to be offered by the county government,” stressed Okiring.
The administrator therefore called on the county government to consider improving the condition of local healthcare centres, markets, as well as roads.
He stated that his office through the county commissioner had written to KENGEN and KETRACO to supply power to the area by establishing a substation in Suba.
He said a majority of residents depended on the sale of fish stressing; “The fish traders depend on electricity to refrigerate their produce and yet the region lacks power oftentimes and this adversely affects their business.”
Okiring also implored the county government to come up with programs that can help nurture talents among the youth.
