Word from the Governor
Her Excellency Dr. Joyce Laboso
Welcome to the Bomet County Citizen Engagement Portal
The County Government of Bomet through my leadership has embarked on an ambitious development agenda to transform Bomet into an economic power house in the South-rift region and beyond. With focus on service delivery to the people of Bomet, we have rolled out several projects and programmes in a bid to improve social-economic status of our people.
The fruits of devolution are now being felt at the grassroots level in Bomet County with the county government progressively opening up the region for trade to flourish with infrastructural development at the grassroots.
The county government has put in place measures to leverage on dairy production and its rich fertile agricultural lands to uplift the economic statuses of its people though agribusiness and value additions.
As a County, we are rebranding as a Dairy County, we have rolled out various programs aimed at enhancing milk production up to 200 million litres annually through improvement of dairy cattle breeds with subsidized Artificial Insemination (AI) services. A total of 30 milk coolers with a capacity to chill over 160,000 litres of milk daily have been installed in the county. 50 motorcycles have already been dispatched for use by veterinary and extension officers in all the 25 wards who will train individual farmers and cooperative societies on adoption of best agricultural practices and modern farming techniques to spur production.
