KNA Marachi Central residents are set to benefit from a water project after the County Government of Busia decided to drill boreholes at a cost of Sh1.2million to address water shortage in the Ward.
Speaking at Emukhuyu village in Marachi Central Ward, Butula Sub-county where he commissioned the drilling of a borehole for the community by the county rig, Deputy Governor Moses Mulomi, urged leaders in the county to support development agendas spearheaded by County and to shun divisive politics.
“Do not give attention to leaders who engage in empty rhetoric without development vision. Busia needs competent leaders who can help spur growth. I urge our leaders to desist from politicking and instead focus on service delivery,” he said.
He assured the residents that the County Government is doing its best to improve their lives by providing essential services needed.
“Apart from this borehole, we are drilling today, I also presided over drilling of another borehole in Bukhalalire the other day. We have several water projects in this Sub-county, including the solar powered water project that Governor Ojaamong commissioned a few months ago and a new market at Murumba among many others, “said the DG.
“This is part of our commitment to ensuring sufficient supply of water to both local communities and public facilities in the County,” added Mulomi.
The borehole is also expected to benefit hundreds of residents living Marachi Central Ward who have been experiencing acute water shortage.
Mulomi urged the residents to consider him for the gubernatorial position in the county based on his development record and the ability to work in harmony with both the Governor and County Assembly.
