Naivasha’s Lakeview Ward MCA Karanja Mburu has called on Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui to move with speed and establish a structured mechanism in handling matters corona virus.

MCA Karanja who is also the chairman Disaster Committee in the County assembly of Nakuru says the county lacks a committee that can respond to such issues.

He says this is a hindrance to proper coordination whenever a disaster hits and is now appealing t Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui to ensure a Nakuru county Emergency Response Council chaired by himself (governor).

This, he says will be able to ensure that whenever a disaster hits up then the there is structured way of responding to the same.

“We want the Corona virus issue to be dealt with in a structured way. Let the governor shun PR and first ensure there is Nakuru county Emergency Response Council” said MCA Karanja.

The vocal MCA who has been viewed as a great critic of Kinyanjui’s administration reveals already the county assembly had approved Ksh.50 million for the emergence response issues.

He is however quick to note that the money has not reflected anywhere on the ground in terms of emergency response.

While noting the weight of the corona virus matter, the Lakeview Ward MCA has appealed to the county government of Nakuru to ensure that the water issue is addressed.

He says it’s high time that the county government of Nakuru sensitize the public on the matter at the grassroot level.

He has also proposing that the County supplies water and sanitizers to all the market places in all the sub counties to ensure sanitation is adhered to avert exposure to the virus.

“If we do not sensitize our people we shall loose. I call on the county government that this is the time to ensure plenty water and sanitizers at the market places for our people” said MCA Karanja.

His sentiments coming just a day after Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui flanked with his deputy Dr.Erick Korir and County CECs addressed media highlighting the various measures put in place towards combating COVID-19.
