All development projects promised by the Jubilee government will be implemented, Petroleum and Mining CAS John Mosonik has said.

Mosonik said despite the delays in rolling out projects in some areas, the government is keen to start. He urged patience.

“We must all hold our leaders responsible if what they pledged to deliver when they took office does not materialise at the end of their terms ... the people who are the taxpayers deserve services and promises must be fulfilled,” he said.

The Jubilee government promised 10,000km of roads under the annuity programme.

The CAS cited the infrastructure works lined up for implementation when the administration took to power in 2013 as some of the major projects that will be realised.

The CAS spoke when he inspected the ongoing works at the 60km Kyogong-Sigor-Chebunyo-Kipreres-Longisa road being upgraded to bitumen standards.

The project, under the annuity programme’s low seal volume technique rolled out by the government, is aimed at ensuring key roads across the country are made passable to lift the economy.

The former Transport and Infrastructure PS principal  urged residents to support the government development projects.

The project, which is set to be completed in 36 months, is implemented by the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation at a cost of Sh2.1 billion.

He urged the contractor to hurry up.

Last year, the residents stage demonstrations protesting against delay in constructing the road, which has become impassable.
