Speaking after the third leg of the two-day program last Friday at the Molo Stadium in Molo Sub County, Governor Mbugua termed the results and feedback from the residents as overwhelming.
‘This is now the true definition of devolution where the public have a chance to interact with their leaders one on one and their issues are addressed. We have been able to sort some issues, which would never have reached us at the headquarters.
The Molo people are also very happy with this program which will roll out to all sub counties,’ said Mbugua.
The Outreach Program, which will visit all the 11 sub counties in Nakuru until April Where hundreds of Molo residents from the four wards namely Sachangwan, Marioshoni, Elburgon and Molo town got a chance to interact with the county’s top leadership and other county government officers where most of their issues were addressed.
Governor Kinuthia Mbugua who led all the various departments of the county government reiterated that the outreach program was keen on ensuring that all key services are taken closer to people.
The governor also took the opportunity during the outreach program to flag off three state of the art graders to be used in upgrading county roads in Molo and other sub counties.
During the two day program Governor Mbugua commissioned 20 candy shops, which are being constructed in Molo town by the National Youth Enterprise Fund in partnership with the County Government.
The shops, Mbugua said, will be distributed fairly and without any payment to the youth for businesses purposes.

During the luncheon hosted by the bank Mbugua called on all Molo residents to register as voters.
‘I have seen more than 3000 uncollected IDs at the registrar’s office and this is not good. How are you going to register as a voter if you do not have an ID?’ posed Mbugua.
On his part Family Bank Chairman Dr. Wilfred Kiboro lauded Nakuru County for initiating the County Outreach Program.
He said the program was one of the best ways to listen and know the demands and needs of the people adding that other counties should follow suit.
