Nakuru Governor Kinuthia Mbugua has defended his decision to run temporary offices at the 11 sub-county headquarters, saying this will enable him to interact with residents on a one-on-one basis.

The governor, his deputy and his top county officials Friday pitched camp in Kuresoi South, where they launched the new style of management.

Hundreds of residents in the sub-county jostled to have a chance to meet the governor at his office at the Olenguruone Trading Centre, with some saying this was welcome.

“For the better part of this year, we will take services offered at our headquarters to those of sub-counties and afterwards to all wards,” said Mr Mbugua.

The governor denied claims that it was a campaign strategy ahead of the 2017 General Election.

From this month until April, the governor and his team plan to spend at least two days in a week in each sub-county.
