By Bob Aston
Ol-Moran/Sipili ward administrator organized a meeting on November 3, 2014 with some stakeholders at Ng’arua Maarifa Centre to plan for Thursdays visit by Laikipia County chief officers. The meeting which was attended by Ol-Moran Ward administrator, representatives from the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Public health, Arid Lands Information Network (ALIN) and Sipili Polytechnic Manager, selected some projects that the chief officers will visit on Thursday.
“The visit will enable the chief officers to get information on the ground. They will be able to learn the various challenges that people from Ol-Moran ward face and how such problems can be prioritized,” said Mr. Charles Keru, Ol-Moran Ward administrator.
Some of the projects selected to be visited in Sipili include; Sipili Health centre, Sipili Polytechnic, Wangwachi borehole, Sipili sales yard, Sipili Cereal Bank, Sipili passion growers and Stock Theft Unit (STU) camp in Wangwachi.
The Sipili visit will culminate in a stakeholders meeting at Ng’arua Maarifa Centre. Various stakeholders will then have a chance to interact with Laikipia County chief officers and see areas that should be prioritized when developing the ward.
The chief officers will then head to Ol-Moran after the Sipili stakeholders meeting. Projects selected to be visited in Ol-Moran include; Ol-Moran Health centre, Ol-Moran Polytechnic, Ol-Moran cattle dip, dairy group, Ol-Moran Cereal Bank and water project.
“We have included cereal banks because it is important to discuss about food security and about storage. Food storage has been a problem in the ward and we need to see how we can address the issue,” said Mr. Keru.
The Ol-Moran visit will then culminate in a stakeholders meeting at Red Cross Hall. The stakeholders meeting is expected to give the county chief officers an understanding of the different projects being implemented in Ol-Moran ward and how stakeholders can be involved in the development agenda.
