Bungoma County Executive Committee Member for Water and Natural Resources Hon. Renson Makheti accompanied by Chief Officer Roads and Infrastructure, Maurice Marango, has today launched the drilling of Siloba water project in Kimaeti ward, Bumula sub county of the expansive Bungoma County.
Speaking at Siloba Shine Primary School where the project is being hosted, Makheti assured Residents of the county Government's continuous support for the sleepy Village.
"We are happy to have started this key project. Bitobo SubLocation and especially this village have lagged behind in terms of development because of lack of basic amenities. As a county government, we understand the tough times members of this village are going through especially during this dry season. That's why we are ensuring this project is completed in record time so as to cushion our women against the scorch of water shortage," Makheti said.
