Livestock is the backbone of our economy in West Pokot County. The governor commissioned a free vaccination exercise against the Contagious Borine Pleura Pneumonia (CBP) disease on Saturday at Kanyerus in Suam Ward of Kacheliba Constituency . The week long exercise will be conducted in North Pokot along its borders with Uganda and Turkana County. It is a preventive measure and targets 30,000 livestock.

It's being coordinated by county's livestock officers, the governor calls upon the national government to boost the exercise through additional funds which will ensure that all the animals along the border will get vaccinated.

Area MP Hon Mark Lomunokol thanked the county government for initiating the exercise and called upon all farmers to avail their livestock at designated cattle dips for vaccination.

The vaccination improves immunity of livestock for a period of 6-8 months and the move seeks to improve livestock productivity and enhance its marketability, West Pokot is the largest supplier of meat to Kitale, Western Kenya, Mai Mahiu, Nairobi and others areas.

Governor Lonyang'apuo was accompanied by County Executive Committees (CECs), Geoffrey Lipale (Pastoral Economy), Luka Chepelion (Roads and Public Works), Joel Arumonyang (Lands) and Augustine Lotodo (Trade) among other top county officials.
