Leaders in Thika sub-county and Kiambu County have promised to support the church in their quest to invest in the region.

Kiambu Deputy Governor Dr. James Nyoro and Thika Town MP Eng. Patrick Wainaina said that it was through such initiatives that the county will grow and create the much sought jobs for the people.

Speaking at the Christ Is The Answer Ministries (CITAM) church Thika in Ngoingwa, the leaders promised to work together to create an enabling environment that promoted the ease of doing business in the region through the formalisation of policies dealing with registering property, construction permits and getting electricity.

“As a County Government, we will approve any building plans for all churches applying for structural development without any delays and free of charge. Those still chasing for title deeds should liaise with the relevant county officials for assistance. That is the only way we can attract investment by the church and their followers,” said Nyoro.

On his part, Eng. Wainaina said that his key agenda was to create jobs for the people and to achieve this goal, he would partner with all stakeholders who included the county government and the church.

The legislator added that among his priorities was to open up Thika town through the expansion of the existing road network as well as constructing new ones in order to ease traffic flow in and out of the town. For this he said that he had applied to the national government to have a dual-carriage road stretching from the Ngoingwa flyover to Landless Estate with future plans to extend it to Matuu in Machakos County.

“We will also work with the county government to lay modalities of expediting the process of business registration and licensing as well as attracting investors by creating an enabling environment that promote the ease of doing business,” said the Thika MP.

Bishop David Oginde of CITAM Valley Road said that his plans to soon put up a world-class school in Thika that will cater for the physical, intellectual, social and spiritual needs of the learners.

“Our theme this year as the church is ‘Positioned 4 Action’. We have positioned ourselves to invest in this and this school is one of the many projects that we plan to invest in Thika in the coming years,” explained Dr. Oginde.

The occasion was later graced by Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu.
