Governor Charity Ngilu has this afternoon made an impromptu inspection at the Kitui slaughterhouse to check on the current working conditions at the facility.
Speaking while on the inspection, Governor Ngilu called for a speedily upgrading of the facility to boost its effectiveness, hygiene conditions, and model of operations.
“There’s need to change this place modernize its operations and model to facilitate the growing cattle market in our region. Operations must be effective, clean, and relevant to the market.” She explained.
Further, she proclaimed a stern warning to the few individuals who had grabbed and built on land belonging to the facility.
“There are no games here, anyone who has grabbed this land will face the law’s wrath. We shall not hesitate to bring down any structure built on this land. Let those culpable be warned, we shall spare no one’s house, shop, room, or even wall.” She asserted.
This inspection sets precedence for the commencement of renovation works in that facility that services almost 80% of the slaughtering needs in the larger Kitui area.
Once complete, most operations will be mechanized, and a major improvement of both working and operations conditions.
This will be a major game-changer towards the implementation of Governor Charity Ngilu’s 5 Pillar Manifesto.
