Governor Lee KinyanjuiNakuru County Governor Lee Kinyanjui has said good governance is critical if counties are to attract investors and development partners. He said good governance creates an enabling environment for engagement. He said such an environment has attracted development partners, especially in the water sector in the County. "We have partners in major water and sanitation projects including the Itare dam project that will supply Nakuru with 100,000 cubic metres a day, Chemususu dam that will supply 10,000 cubic metres daily," he said. He said Nakuru County has also partnered with investors in sanitation projects and expansion of sewerage works. The partners include World Bank, Africa Development Bank, KfW Germany, Kenya Pooled Water Fund, VEI and Water and Sanitation for Urban Poor.

Governor Kinyanjui was speaking at the Kenya Water Summit in Naivasha. He reiterated that the National Government had rolled out the Big Four agenda that include manufacturing, food security, universal healthcare and affordable housing. "Water is a crucial enabler of all the four agendas. Most of these projects will be located in counties and it is upon us to ensure we have sustainable supply of clean and safe water," Governor Kinyanjui said. He pointed out that an industrial park to be constructed in Maai Mahiu and affordable housing units in Naivasha are mega projects that will need adequate supply of water. Present at the summit were Water and Sanitation CS Simon Chelugui, Water PS Fred Sigor, Governors Francis Kimemia of Nyandarua, Kiptis of Baringo and Wilbur Otichilo of Vihiga. Nakuru CEC for Water, Environment, Energy and Natural Resources Eng. Festus Ngeno was also present.
