Nakuru will be model county, says Mbugua

The first-ever Governor of Nakuru, Kinuthia Mbugua - a man who ditched the gun for the pen after he resigned as the Commandant of the Administration Police — says he will do his best to make it a model county.

He will put to good use his experience in the security forces to instil discipline among the staff in a bid to make service delivery efficient. Corruption, he said, would “cease to be a way of life in this county.

“My dream and vision is clear; to make Nakuru a model county. I promise to steer Nakuru County into the sunrise of its potential and into the sunset of its past failures. I am willing to put everything I have into this job because I regard it as a sacred duty,” said Mr Mbugua during his swearing-in ceremony at the Afraha Stadium Annex in Nakuru on March 27.

The Governor said he would work with all stakeholders to make his dream a reality. His government, he said, would create an “enabling environment” for investors with the top issue on his agenda being to address security concerns.

Mr Mbugua said he will use the skills that he learnt during his years of training personnel in security services to help boost security and help “ensure that Nakuru County is the safest in Kenya.”

“I will do all in my ability to utilise the resources at my disposal and the invaluable networks that I have created over the years, to ensure that the dream of a prosperous Nakuru lives, and remains a reality for generations to come,” said Governor Mbugua.
