Written by Nancy Naholi
The City Management has today conducted a visit to assess the progress of the ongoing construction of Mbugua Mbugua storm water drainage following heavy rains that affected the neighbourhoods adjacent to the project.
The team closely examined the project’s construction quality, its functionality and its effectiveness in mitigating the effects of flooding.
During the visit, the City Management team led by the City Planner Macharia Thang’wa thoroughly assessed the impact of the heavy downpour on the adjacent neighbourhoods to ascertain the severity of the situation.
The concerned property owners called upon the County Government County and City Management to establish sustainable solutions to address this recurring issue.
Based on the observations and recommendations gathered from the neighbourhood the Management has affirmed to involve relevant state agencies including Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) to promptly and permanently address the menace.
H.E Governor Susan Kihika’s Administration is committed to continuing to develop high-capacity drainage systems and maintaining the existing ones to realize a flood-resistant city and safeguard the living conditions of Wanjiku.
By implementing these measures, the City Management aims to address the concerns of the affected property owners develop sustainable solutions for stormwater drainage and prevent any further damage to the neighbouring areas during heavy rainfall.
Also joining the inspection meeting were technical officers from the City Board, the Project Consultant and Contractor Smooth Consult and Effective Construction Limited.
