The two executive members said they would work tirelessly to ensure services are delivered to the electorate.

Towett said he is committed to turning around the agriculture department by ensuring the local economy is boosted. “The ball is now in my court. I want to promise county residents that I will put my best foot forward while serving them.”

On his part, Terer said he is determined to ensure county roads are upgraded to the best standard.
