“Chogoria Town, arguably the oldest urban settlement in Tharaka Nithi County, but that lags behind in aesthetics is slated for a major face-lift as the first in a series of upgrading our urban centers. The exercise will begin next month ending in modernization of all major towns in our constituencies in an effort to make them conducive for doing business and attractive to investors.
The urban roads upgrade programme is part of the massive infrastructure development currently underway in our county.
Today I end the week with the launch of three roads in Maara Sub-county. These are Katharaka- Mumbuuni, Baragu- Kirumi and Nguruki- Kaare. The roads are being murummed, widened and drainage fixed through culverts to prevent flooding and washing away. The development will cure several transportation headaches key among these the challenge of roads becoming impassable during the rainy season, accidents due to the narrowness and dust when it is dry like now. The roads upgrade will run in tandem with improving our urban centres.
Our towns as of now are haphazardly established with amorphous structures but we purpose to make sure there is uniformity.
We will tarmac all of them.
Business premises will also get a new look to give our traders better a better working environment. We will ensure the standards we put in place are are maintained and upheld.
Within this spirit of improving our County. I urge all Tharaka Nithi citizens to join me tomorrow in Chuka at the launch of our clean up, waste and garbage management programme.
Welcome to a new-look TNC going forward.” – H.E. the Governor.
