The County Government of Bomet, in partnership with the Kenya Red Cross Society, launched Phase 2 of the Chebang’ang’ Water Project in Konoin Sub-County. This phase includes extending the water pipeline from Chebang’ang’ to Kapset Centre, aiming to supply clean and safe drinking water to over 10,000 households in Kimulot Ward.

The event was graced by several leaders, including Bomet County Governor Prof. Hillary Barchok, Deputy Governor Shadrack Rotich, Bomet County Assembly Speaker Cosmas Korir, deputy Secretary-General of Kenya Red Cross Society, Joe Mbalu,  Kenya Red Cross Governor Geoffrey Kipngetich, and several members of the County Assembly.

Addressing the residents, Bomet County Governor Prof. Hillary Barchok praised the partnership that his administration has with the Kenya Red Cross Society.

“The Kenya Red Cross Society has been an invaluable partner in our mission to enhance the well-being of our residents. Their support in healthcare and clean water provision has made tangible differences in the lives of the residents of Bomet, and today’s launch is a testament to what we can achieve through strong partnerships,” he stated.

After the commissioning of the water project, the County boss proceeded to launch the KapWesly-Kapsengere Road. The road is expected to ease transportation for the residents of Kimulot Ward, improving access to markets, healthcare facilities, and educational institutions.

Additionally, the delegation visited Kimulot Boys High School, where they encouraged and support the students and emphasized the county’s commitment to supporting education.
