Kwale county Governor Salim Mvurya has issued a stern warning to lazy contractors saying they risk being blacklisted.
Addressing the media in Kwale County during the launch of phase two of a multi-million flagship fruits processing plant the county chief expressed dissatisfaction by some of the contractors saying the first phase has taken too long to complete.
He asked all contractors awarded tenders to speed up the construction work in a bid to complete in time.
“You can start prepare to supply fruits to the factory once this factory is complete. The county government will provide free fruit seedlings to the farmers after undergoing training,” Mvurya noted.
Kubo South assistant county commissioner Simon Waithungu said the flagship project between the county and national government is aimed at facilitating service delivery to the locals
Meanwhile, project committee chair Sammy Tole said the project has created job opportunities amongst the youths.
“A good number of youths have been employed and we expect more to come on board once the project is complete come November this year.” Said Tole.
