The discussions highlighted several key issues for prioritization, including the need for a modern market, tarmacking of a 3 km road, addressing blocked drains, provision of Jua Kali sheds and installation of street lights among other issues.

Mr. Thabanja emphasized the importance of community input in shaping the future of Nakuru City.

“By listening to the residents, we ensure that our development plans align with the real needs and aspirations of the community,” he said.

He also mentioned that the management is devising a schedule to engage all city wards, as their input will be crucial during budgeting and decision-making phases.

This approach aligns with Governor Susan Kihika’s vision for the City.

Area MCA John Macharia emphasized the importance of these engagements in building trust and collaboration between the County Government, City Management and residents.

He expressed gratitude to Governor Kihika for her commitment to this cause.

This initiative has made an important step towards creating a more inclusive and responsive urban governance.

The forum was also attended by representatives from the Office of the Governor, Mr Martin Gicinga, Francis Njoroge Political Office, Sub County Administrator, Ward Administrator and Area Chief among other stakeholders.
