Sh1.2m transformer purchased to ease water scarcity in Teso North

Busia County Government has purchased a transformer worth Sh1.2million  to  avert water scarcity in Teso North Sub County.
  Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong who made a tour of the area  said  the transformer will help pump water to Malakisi hills  before it is distributed  to adjoining areas via gravity.
” As a stop gap measure before a permanent solution was found  water bowzers will  be availed  to the residents of Angurai and Amagoro,” he said.
 Ojaamong also  commissioned the construction of Akibui-Akichelesit road in Angurai South Ward. He  opened five ECDE classrooms at Koseny, Goromait, Kaujakito, St. Gabriel Moru and Rwatama Primary Schools.
Ojaamong  toured Akichelesit Primary School to inspect two classrooms constructed by the County Government and Akolong Dispensary which is nearing completion.
The Governor later commissioned the training of 55 boda boda riders who are sponsored by the Ward Development Fund to undertake driving lessons of both small and heavy duty vehicles with East Max Driving School at Rwatama Primary School.
During the tour Ojaamong received overwhelming support from residents and boda boda operators who lauded his administration for making county roads motorable.
” Our passengers never fall when we ride on County Government managed roads but they succumb to injuries when we ride on National Government Roads because of their poor state. We are 100 per cent behind you,” the riders Ward Association chairman Robert Ipaat said.
Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry Busia County Vice chairman Fred Papa said he was happy with the transparency in issuance of County Education Bursary but decried CDF bursary which he said was skewed towards the rich at the expense of deserving cases.
County Women aspirant Cynthia Mutere said she was shocked to take only one hour drive from Busia to Rwatama Primary because of good roads and predicted that Ojaamong will be re-elected without much sweat.
Ote said his ward was bigger than Budalangi constituency, thus the need to have it split into three when IEBC undertakes boundaries review in 2017.
Roads CEC Bernard Yaite said the County Government will launch rural electrification by connecting electricity from Primary Schools to reach all citizens.
KNUT Teso Deputy Executive Secretary Olunga Ekwenye told BAT and Master Tobacco Kenya to pay farmers their two years arrears or they boycott their products.
Rwatama Primary head Joseph Eseme said it was regrettable no structure by the National Government or CDF had been put up at the school because of his political stand and yet roofs of one block had been condemned by public health officers.
Roads and transport Chief Officer Roselyne Barasa said Angurai is the 16th ward to have County Road equipment assembly to repair roads, adding that the exercise will continue to  the remaining 18 wards.
