Baringo Deputy Governor Jacob Chepkwony on Monday launched the drilling of a borehole in Seretunin, Ewalel/Chapchap ward.
Speaking during the launch of the drilling, the Deputy County Boss said the county government is targeting to drill 60 boreholes every financial year.
“Provision of clean and safe water for both household and livestock use to the people of Baringo remains our top development agenda,” said Chepkwony.
This is the third borehole being drilled in Ewalel Chapchap Ward since the acquisition of the drilling rigs by Governor Stanley Kiptis’ administration.
“The acquisition of borehole drilling equipment is thus a strategic investment decision that will ultimately speed up drilling works and greatly reduce costs,” he said.
Chepkwony said the borehole will benefit over 5,000 residents in the area and it’s neighborhood who have been forced to rely on unsafe sources or trek long distance to get water.
