Kitui county government awarded contracts amounting to ksh.309M on Wednesday January 31.
The contracts which were awarded to 39 contractors in the presence of the County boss Charity Ngilu, will cover works for 2,700kms of county roads.
Addressing the contractors, the governor said that value for money must be seen at the end of their tasks.
“It is mandatory that these life changing projects be done within given timelines at the respective areas as awarded“, she said.
She added that no one will be paid any single coin, if shoddy works are done. The governor told the contractors that they must use the locals in achieving the projects awarded but use expertise where possible to make sure that a standard job is done, which must consume more than 70 per cent of the total cost.
The governor also urged the contractors to use polite language to the community adding that protection of people’s property including buildings, shambas, homesteads among others would be observed.
The county minister for Land, Infrastructure, Housing and Urban Development (LIHUD) Eng. Jacob Kakundi further asked the contractors to exercise professionalism and finish their works within the set time frame.
