Assets worth over Sh.200 Million lies unclaimed in eastern region, the Eastern Regional Commissioner (RC), Isaiah Nakoru has said.

Let the information concerning the unclaimed assets be availed to wananchi so that the owners may go and claim it, he noted.

The RC who was chairing Embu-Tharaka Nithi intercounty security meeting in Embu has also directed chiefs to ensure all school going children are in school.

It is bad for school going children to be found in your area of jurisdiction not attending school, he warned the chiefs.

The RC challenged chiefs to ensure order and peaceful coexistence prevail in their area of jurisdiction.

On government projects, the RC urged the county commissioners, their deputies and chiefs to be holding frequent barazas to stress on what the government is doing.

Let all of us market the good image of the government by disseminating information on what the government is doing at the grassroots, he added.
