In her own words, ‘I believe the people of Makueni have a God-given mandate to subdue their earth – to tame it and make it work for them. My mission is to enable them do this by helping them acquire security of title to their land, plan it well for efficient and productive use, and in so doing ensure a clean, safe environment for each one of us’. She is confident that the people of Makueni can achieve this.
