County Assets Valuation

The County Secretary Jonathan Siwanyang chaired an entry meeting with valuers for valuation of all motor vehicles, plants and machinery initially owned by the national government and local authorities.

Pursuant to gazette notice no. 3839, Intergovernmental Relations, the County Assets committee co-chaired by the County Secretary and County Commissioner was established whose mandate is to value and transfer all assets initially owned by local authorities and national government before devolution to the county government.

The motor vehicles are spread out in the all sub counties within the county where the team intends to do the exercise (valuation of all motor vehicles, plants and machinery) within two weeks.

The State Department of Devolution is committed to ensure the whole exercise flows smoothly and is completed on time and the Regional Mechanical engineer will spearhead the process of valuation of all the said motor vehicles and ensure that they are all transferred to the county government.

This is a win for devolution as all assets that were still at the national government will now be devolved to the county government for effective and efficient service delivery.

In attendance were Luther Chepkwony from the State Department Of Devolution, Edwin Tonui- Regional Mechanical Engineer, Stephen Wachiya- Motor vehicles inspector, David Rugut- West Pokot National Lands Commission Coordinator, Mildred Chebor and Stella Adeny from the county legal office.
