Bomet County has immensely benefited from her partnership with the World Bank through the Kenya Urban Support Programme.
This morning, the Deputy Governor, Hon. Shadrack Rotich, led the county delegation in talks with the World Bank team led by Beatrice Erazo, who are in Bomet, to evaluate the several projects undertaken through their partnership with the county as the partnership comes to an end.
Among the key projects already completed in the last five years are the improvement of three roads to Bitumen standards: Longisa town roads, Silibwet town roads, and Chebirir-University roads. Other projects are Bomet Market stalls, Bomet fire station, and extension of the Bomet sewer line.
The team also visited Silibwet and Longisa towns for a physical assessment of the projects.
