Civil Servants in Homa Bay County have been challenged to discharge their duties diligently to the members of the public for the achievement of the Big four agenda.
Speaking on Tuesday at Dicese hall in Homa Bay town while chairing County Service Delivery Committee meeting, the area County Commissioner (CC), Harman Shambi called upon the officers to continue offering their services despite the challenges they were undergoing at their work place.
“Let our presence be felt by the community while discharging our duties to the public as the national government representative in the region,” Shambi said.
Shambi further revealed that the national government has undertaken several development projects and warned the county government not to take credit with such projects.
“We met as heads of national department so that we can revamp what we have been doing so that the people can see what we are doing and appreciate,”Shambi stressed.
The officer who was accompanied by the county security team, including County Police Commander, Esther Seroney further warned the officers against engaging in corrupt practices, saying EACC detectives are in the area to trap corrupt officers.
The administrator also regretted that most officers hated going to work in Suba South Sub County due to poor infrastructure in the region.
He assured the officers that he would lodge a complaint with relevant Ministries to post more officers in the sub county, citing children’s department, civil registrar, Lands registrar and Gender which lacked enough officers.
At the same time, Shambi appealed to the officers not to involve themselves in politics be it for the county government or Member of Parliament and instead perform their duties in line with the code of regulations.
Consequently, Shambi called on the applicants who had applied for the national identity cards and birth certificate to pick the document at Huduma centre.
He further revealed that over 1000 cards and more than 500 birth certificates were lying uncollected at the centre.
