We are ready to partner with Anyone - Says Mwadime
WSTF Board of Trustees are touring coastal counties to assess investment projects co-founded by the water and sanitation services
Taita Taveta County Governor H.E Andrew Mwadime has once again reiterated his commitment to working with development partners in ensuring county realizes her development agenda and quality service delivery to residents.
In a meeting with officers from Water Sector Trust Fund, the county boss said his administration has begun plans to harvest rain waters, a move he says will not only boost food production, provide adequate water for consumption but also avert the current situation of dilapidated critical infrastructure especially roads.
WSTF Board of Trustees are touring coastal counties to assess investment projects co-founded by the water and sanitation services i.e Water Sector Trust Fund and the county government.
Governor Mwadime is now calling on the WSTF to help his administration construct check-dams, noting the limited resources the county has to facilitate the process.
"It's unfortunate that as a county we are relying on relief food in curbing the hunger situation currently engulfing our people. We have an ideal topography that can help us construct enough check-dams for rain water harvesting, this will assist in irrigation, consumption by both human and livestock and also for wildlife. Through Public Private Partnership, we will also save the lives of fauna and ultimately curb the human-wildlife conflict." The county CEO said.
According to Bill Lay, WSTF Director, today's courtesy call to the office of the Governor seeks to highlight on areas of collaboration and pending issues including county contribution.
The team will visit projects in Mwatate sub-county including the Nayngoro-Maktau project and the dry kishenyi dam in Wundanyi sub-county among others before heading to Counties of Mombasa and Kwale.
