KITUI ASSEMBLY COMMITTEE ON TRADE VISITS KWA KILUI CRUSHER AND MWINGI KICOTEC

On Friday, 3rd May, 2024 – The County Assembly Committee on Trade, Industry, ICT and Cooperatives continued with her inspection exercise of assessing the status of the Kitui County Corporations.

The Committee led by the chairperson Hon. Daniel Ngoima (Township) toured Kitui County Ballast Crusher at Kwa Kilui in Yatta /Kwa Vonza Ward. The Committee established that the crusher has not been operational despite county spending millions of shillings in purchasing and installing the equipment. The 11- member committee said that the concerned ministry should install lights around the site to light the area in order to avert issues of vandalism during the night. Even though this site has security officers manning the equipment, there is a need to install lights for security purposes”, added Hon. Ngoima.

Later the team visited KICOTEC, Mwingi Branch situated in Mwingi Central ward where they were received by Madam Ann Mutinda, Mwingi Central Sub-county ECDE Director. The committee learnt that the land where KICOTEC is situated, was hived-off from District Centre for Early Childhood Education (DICECE) compound.

Madam Mutinda further revealed to the committee that there is no formal agreement between the County Government and DICECE on the ownership of the parcel of land where KICOTEC sits. She further urged the committee to initiate the process of transferring the piece of land to the county government through the right channel, to avoid tussle over the ownership in future. We were promised a new hall after the county took over this one. That has never been actualized to date”, revealed Madam Mutinda.

The area MCA Hon. Bernard Munyasya who had accompanied the committee to the site, urged the committee to fast-track the process of operationalizing KICOTEC Mwingi Branch, so that the Mwingi region can also reap the benefit of KICOTEC’s operations. If this project is actualized, people of this region can benefit immensely, added Hon. Munyasya.

Hon. Ngoima assured the area MCA that the committee in her capacity will advocate for the operationalization of KICOTEC, Mwingi Branch. “The county has put a lot of resources here and the only way to ensure prudent use of county resources, is to open this branch”, Hon. Ngoima remarked.
