The Governor Kakamega County H.E FCPA Fernandes Barasa Friday inspected and flagged off a 16,000 litre water bowser purchased by the County Government to supply water to residents.

He called on partners to support his administration in solarization of boreholes, smart metering, pipeline extension and rehabilitation of Tindinyo water pipeline.
