County set to fast track Urbanization of Taveta and Voi Towns

The County Government is taking steps to ensure that they spur good governance and growth in Taveta and Voi urban centers.

The two towns which had previously had their status conferred and gazetted in 2017 will borrow some concepts from the Kenya Urban Support Program (KUSP). KUSP is in charge of implementing operationalization in the Mwatate Municipality. The county assembly last week received the Municipal Charter for Mwatate for approval.

Part of KUSP Coordinating team is planning on working with the Mwatate town administrators to fast track and ensure the town’s municipal charters are updated. They also plan to facilitate the recruitment of town management committees and engage the public on functional structures.

Sensitization and providing of information on the benefits of the activity will be done through participation meetings.

Present at the meeting chaired by the Deputy Governor Majala Mlagui today included CECM Finance and Planning Dr. Vincent Masawi, Lands, Mining, Environment and Natural Resources Getrude Shuwe, Tourism, Service Delivery, Industralization and Energy Janet Mwawasi, Economic Advisor to the Governor Sylvester Mwaliko, Administrator at the Office of the County Secretary John Mwakima, County Legal Director Edward Chahilu, Taveta Town Administrator Rashid Shariff and his Voi counterpart Mwanjala.
