Energy PS Joseph Njoroge has intervened in a row on the exploration of geothermal energy in Longonot, Naivasha. As a result, two communities embroiled in a standoff with the AGIL Geothermal Drilling Company have now agreed to hold joint elections to pick their representatives in the company.

Farmers and members of the local pastoralist community will now elect officials next week after they were prevailed upon by government officials. The PS and Nakuru County Commissioner Joshua Nkanatha Thuranira led government officials during talks that ended the row.
