Irrigation Principal Secretary Prof. Fred Segor on Saturday opened Mitambo water project in Trans Nzoia County.
Speaking during the opening of the borehole water project, Prof. Segor said water provision is one of the government’s core projects.
“We are determined to transform the lives of our people by initiating key water projects which will benefit the people,” Segor said.
The project in Waitaluk, Kiminini Sub County, will benefit 500 households.
Prof. Segor, who also visited Ng’eng’e dam in Kwanza Sub County, said the National Government will partner with the County Government of Trans Nzoia in desilting four dams in the county.
He said the dams will be used by farmers to irrigate their farms so that they can produce crops throughout the year.
The PS was accompanied by Trans Nzoia Water Chief Officer John Meng’wa who revealed that the county government has set aside Kshs. 10 million for the desiltation of dams.
