This Project has developed infrastructure where 5 earth dams, 2 boreholes and 7 Market sheds that hold offices have been constructed.
CS Munya was accompanied by CAS Anne Nyaga, MP Hon Mpuru Aburi and Ministry’s technical officers who have been offering extension services to Miraa farmers in the Miraa growing regions.
