The Governor of Laikipia, H.E. Hon Ndiritu Muriithi, has been nominated and accepted to become chair of the board of the Raila Odinga 2022 Campaign.
Laikipia Governor Ndiritu Muriithi
An economist and financial markets expert, Governor Muriithi, has over 29 years’ experience in leadership and management in Kenya, South Africa, Canada and Australia. Governor Murithi was instrumental in the drive to have the derelict Nairobi-Nanyuki and Gilgil-Nyahururu railway lines rehabilitated. He is the current finance, planning and economic affairs committee chairperson of the Council of Governors elected in January 2021. Upon his election as Governor of Laikipia in 2017, Mr. Muriithi embarked on radical reforms of the county public service to make it professional and globally competitive. These efforts have been rewarded with unmatched growth of the county’s own source revenue which has doubled since the 2016/2017 financial year. Mr Muriithi is also credited with modernizing key towns of Laikipia under his Smart Towns Initiative funded partial by the World Bank’s Urban Support and Devolution Support programs. He has also refocused the county public service to enterprise development to bridge the gap between development and positive social change. Under his leadership, over 1600 local Small and Medium Enterprises are undergoing incubation under the Laikipia Innovation and Enterprise development Programme which he started in 2018 to nurture the SMEs to become manufacturers through increased production.
