A German based company that specialises in road construction, equipment and mineral extraction technologies has expressed it’s interest in Makueni and wants to partner with the county.
The company is one of several local and international organisations that have shown interest in these projects in Governor Kivutha Kibwana’s county.
Wirtgen Group expressed its intentions during the Road Technology Days 2018 workshop in Ludwigshafen, which began on Friday
The company wants to construct low cost rural sector roads and according to county Roads executive Sebastian Kyoni, who is in Germany, the county is open to this.
“I have represented our case very well so we are hopeful that the interest shown by the Wirtgen Group will be escalated,” Sebastian Kyon said
The company will also help with the acquisition of equipment and technology transfer to the county roads team, through its Kenya subsidiary Panafrican Equipment.
Makueni MP Daniel Maanzo has demanded that the national and county governments release money for the repair of roads damaged by floods.
Maanzo said this after a bridge at Matiliku on Emali-Wote road was swept by floodwaters.
The legislator promised to raise the matter in Parliament.
