    COUNTY GOVERNMENT OF TAITA TAVETA
    OFFICE OF THE CECM WATER & IRRIGATION

    CALLING ON ENGINEERS FROM TAITA TAVETA COUNTY TO BUILD THEIR COUNTY.
    I wish to bring the attention of all engineering professionals from Taita Taveta County to an advert in the Standard Newspaper of Wednesday 22nd October 2014 by Tavevo Water and Sewerage Company (a company wholly owned by the County Government) seeking to recruit a Technical Manager.

    In terms of structure we have arranged that The County Government will construct water service provision infrastructure and hand over to Tavevo Water and Sewerage company for operation and maintenance. Some projects will be managed by community based organizations (those that will operate efficiently).This is guided by existing laws and regulations.

    The County Government has had challenges in getting Engineers from the County to apply for Technical jobs. We are aware that the remuneration package for public service is not particularly enticing to professional engineers. While we are striving to improve this, there are limitations we have to live with.

    However I urge all qualified professionals who love our county to consider applying for the Job (and a few more which will soon be advertised by the County Government and Tavevo).

    I hasten to add my fellow county kin. Time comes when men and women must stand up and build their own county. Such a time is now. The destiny of our county is now in our very own hands. If each one of us can give 1-3 years of our lifetime to serve our county, we will have made our contribution to changing the course of the history of our county. And when the history of our county is finally written, let it be said that the great County of Taita Taveta was built by its own citizens, men and women, who made great sacrifices. Yes we can !
    County Executive Member – Water and Irrigation.
