CS Wamalwa Set for Addis

Water and Irrigation Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa will join President Uhuru Kenyatta in Addis, Ethiopia, today for a regional conference.

Wamalwa officially assumed his Maji House office yesterday. He said the conference is his first assignment as the CS. The CS said the forum is vital in the plans to improve the department.

“This sector has undergone various reforms already but there is a need to engage more donors to further enhance services,” Wamalwa said. He cited the Gallana water project as the major one his ministry will focus on. Wamalwa pledged to solve the problems facing the Northern Tunnel between Murang’a and Nairobi.
