The National, Wednesday March 12th, 2014
Karimui-Nomane MP and Vice-Minister for Agriculture and Livestock Mogerema Sigo presented their 2013 district improvement and support programme (DSIP and DSG) acquittal reports yesterday.
He appreciated the government leadership and allocation of K10 million to each district to enable service delivery.
“The DSIP gives opportunity to MPs to push for programmes instead of waiting for money,” He said.
Sigo aimed to provide accessibility for his people to services and markets by building better roads.
“One of the important things is to get people into businesses so when better roads are made people will progress,” he said.
Acting Secretary for Department of Implementation and Rural Development Paul Sai’i expressed his appreciation to the MP.
Among the successes were:
- The upgrading and rehabilitation of the Gumine Station-Wara Sua section of Salt-Nomane link road at a cost of K2 million;
- The establishment of the Karamui-Nomane Works unit and acquisition of plant and machinery at a cost of K2.5 million.
- K600,000 school fees subsidy programmes for disadvantaged Karamui-Nomane students.
