AB has urged leaders in Embu County to recognize and include all tribes in the leadership to foster unity.
Dr. Njiru who was addressing Embu County Leaders Summit 2018 on Saturday observed that including all tribes in County’s administration was a basic requirement for unity.
As we seek to unite Embu County, our leaders should not only consider the four main tribes in the county; Embu, Mbeere, Kikuyu and Kamba but other small tribes in the county as well.We cannot also afford to ignore former leaders from the County for they have wealth of experience in matters of leadership and administration, Dr. Njiru added.
The former PS pointed out that proper planning of urban centres in the county was crucial to avoid haphazard development. Let’s plan all urban centres in Embu County by establishing areas for schools, industries, recreational parks among others to avoid disorganized development of facilities, he noted.
And to realize economic transformation, Dr. Njiru challenged the County Government to make rural areas accessible by upgrading feeder roads. The county government should engage qualified engineers in the upgrading of the roads in the county and also use high quality murram for durability of the roads, he advised.
Former Cooperative Minister, Joe Nyaga who also attended the forum urged Embu residents to give maximum support to their leaders.
Nyaga also appealed to former Senator, Lenny Kivuti, who is contending Governor Martin Wambora’s win at Supreme Court to join hands with the current Embu administration for the well being of the County.
The summit that brought together local leaders and other development stakeholders was convened by Governor Wambora with an aim of forging unity among leaders and deliberating on how to develop the region.
