Governor Kiraitu Murungi's Promise To Meru Residents If They Re-elect Him

Several political leaders are now working tooth and nail to make sure they secure their seats come next year. One of them is Meru governor Kiraitu Murungi.

Today, in the ongoing robust efforts to address cancer menace in Meru County, Murungi has this morning issued a cheque worth Ksh 1 million to the Meru Hospice which provides palliative care and pain management for our cancer patients.

He said that Meru Hospice will form a long-term partnership with the Meru Mt. Kenya Run LTD Company, a subsidiary of the Meru County Investment Development Corporation (MCIDC), that organizes and manages the annual Meru Mt. Kenya Run whose objective is to raise funds for cancer management and environmental conservation in the County, so that the Hospice can receive annual contribution from the event’s proceeds.

He added that Meru county is at advanced stages of the establishment of the Meru Cancer Institute which is one of the only two such projects in the Country that have been included in this year’s fiscal budget by the National Treasury. With the establishment of four new KMTC campuses (Kanyakine, Miathene, Maua and Kangeta) in our County which has happened under my leadership, we shall train sufficient personnel for cancer management, some of whom will be seconded to Meru Hospice.

H therefore made a promise, that he commits that in the next term of his leadership, he will be working on a massive project to bring the Ksh 600 million radiotherapy machine to Meru County to relieve the residents of the pain and expenses incurred in traveling to seek the services in Nairobi.
