Kibra Constituency Public Participation on Nairobi County Development Plans
Today we participated in at Joseph Kangete grounds- Woodley in Kibra Constituency in Nairobi.
The picture below is an evidence of what transpired at the venue:
I was surprised to learn that the County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP) and the County Annual Development Plan (CADP) were the final versions. This means that any new proposals may not be included in the planned county development projects.
In Kibra Sub-County a number of development projects are lined-up in the CIDP 2018-2022 as listed below:
-2 fire engines at the sub-county offices
-Legio-maria-Lindi main road
– Drilling of boreholes at Kichinjio and Makongeni area
– Tarmaking of Kichijio road
-expansion of health Center at DC’s Office to include a maternity wing
– a fire station to be established at the ward level
-Tarmacking of corner club-Mama Okinda road and drainage
-Provision of youth empowerment projects such as car wash machines; hairdressing; water tanks; ICT centers;
-renovation of 42 terminus and No.8 stage
-Upgrading of Joseph Kangethe playgrounds
-Rehabilitation of Digo Road in Ngumo
The traders from Woodley Ward requested the Nairobi County government to waiver licenses. This was opposed since this is a source of resources for development projects in Nairobi County.
