Civil servants working in Kiambu under the National Government will now start working from a magnificent Sh.45 million worth County Headquarters after many years of working in small dingy rented offices following the opening of the headquarters last Friday
The officers have now been allocated offices at the building dubbed Kiambu County Commissioner’s Complex that took two years to construct.
Located at Makadara grounds in Kiambu Township, the complex shall accommodate departments in the National Government which have been working from rented premises that were sometimes very congested.
During the opening of the office last Friday, County Commissioner Wilson Wanyanga noted the officers would now not waste time traversing the town to get to meeting venue at the Administration Chapel in Indian Bazaar since the building has enough meeting room.
“Officers will no longer work in rented and dilapidated premises that the landlords refuse to maintain for no proper reason, yet they keep drawing rent from the government.I always had a vision of having all officers working under one roof, and now after opening this office today, we are actually going to deliver as there will be no time wasted walking long distances in search of a service that can be accessed next door,” said the Administrator.
The accommodated departments include Youth, Meteorological, State department of gender, Procurement and Critical Infrastructure Protection Unit (CIPU) whose heads can now breathe a sigh of relief as they will not worry with issues rent.
And today Wanyanga reminded the beneficiaries that they must work as a team and ensure they contributed towards payment of amenities like power and water bills.
