The County Government of Kitui will build a dispensary at Kathanze village in Nuu ward, Mwingi Central Sub-County to ensure residents have easy access to health services in the area.
Speaking to the residents today during the visit, Health and Sanitization Chief Officer, Dr. Richard Muthoka said the county government is keen to ensure the facility is completed within a considerable time frame.
Community representative Pastor Julius Muatha appreciated the move saying it will be a relief to the community.
While the Dispensary was Gazzetted in the 2016-2017 financial year, a spot check by Dr. Muthoka revealed the contractor tasked with setting up the facility deserted the site and was fully paid after filling dubious completion reports.
An agreement was met between Dr. Muthoka and local residents to utilize a vacant room in the chiefs’ camp as a health outlet ahead of completion of the Dispensary.
Dr. Muthoka was accompanied by the County Nursing Officer Mrs. Monica Mutisya.
