Groundbreaking Ceremony Of Unison's Taji Estate, Sewer System

In the effort of having properly planned urban centres, the County Government of Laikipia, a while ago, implored Unison Sacco to fix their upcoming Taji Estate in Nanyuki with basic utilities like a sewer system - before settling their members in their individual plots.
Earlier, as many land buying projects have been, where customers are allocated their land in plots without basic utilities like sewerage systems, water and power supply, Unison had almost stumbled into the same.
"But such fashion of planning is long gone, the Governor once said while engaging the board of directors of Unison Sacco. We must be cognisant of the environmental and health impact of an estate that does not have these utilities," he urged.
Advised, Unison Sacco picked the challenge. Going back to the drawing board, the Saccos management appreciated that with these utilities, the value of their property would add even much value to their customers.
"With these utilities, we become the first Sacco, and this becomes the first land buying project in the country, to afford customers with serviced residential plots, and we are very proud," James Muhandi, Chairman of Unison Sacco said during the groundbreaking fete.
To actualise this plan, on 30th of October, 2020, Unison Sacco signed a contract with Countys water company NAWASCO. In the contract, Sacco committed to funding the sewer system while NAWASCO implements and maintains it.
"This project will cost us 32 million. Astoundingly, it stands to benefit 3400 customers. This means, we are literally making a small city right next to our town Nanyuki," Unison Saccos Chief Executive Officer, John Njogu, said during the contract signing.
Yesterday, 19th, November of 2020, was the hallmark of all those efforts when Governor Ndiritu Muriithi led the groundbreaking ceremony of the sewer system in an event attended by both the institution's senior managers and supervisors of the project. Commencement of work is immediately.
County Executive Member in charge of Environment, Water, Sewer and Sanitation, Mr. Njenga Kahiro, flagged by NAWASCO Managing Director Kennedy Gitonga, assured the Unisons management and their customers of quality work and in record time of four months. In addition, the plots will be connected to NAWASCO's water system.
