Civil servants urged to embrace teamwork for effective service delivery

There is a need for civil servants to embrace teamwork for the government to effectively deliver on its Bottom-up Economic Transformation Agenda, BETA, and development plan.

Uasin Gishu County Commissioner (CC) Dr. Edyson Nyale said it was only through high-level consultation and collaboration that civil servants could support the current government in delivering on the promises it gave the people of Kenya during the campaign period.

“President William Ruto’s government devised the BETA plan premised on five key pillars, Agriculture, Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME), Housing and settlement, Health and Digital and creative economy to spur development, and this can only be achieved if all civil servants worked through synergy and teamwork,” observed the CC.

Dr.Nyale made the remarks on Friday while inaugurating the Uasin Gishu National Government Development – County Implementation and Management Development Committee (NGD-CICMC) at the Eldoret homecraft centre.

All county departmental heads and the county Presidents delivery service will be members of the committees whose role will include monitoring the implementation of projects funded by the national government at the county level, prudent utilization of funds allocated for projects to ensure wananchi get value for their money as well as identifying challenges and possible solutions during the implementation of the projects, and the impact such a project would have for the people.

The CC also asked departmental heads at the county to take development committee meetings seriously since they provide forums to exchange on how well resources availed by the government could be utilized to serve wananchi better.

“Ministries, departments and government SAGA’s can pool the available resources to ensure they take services closer to the people at the grassroots level. Government officers must be able to sensitize and explain national government policies, programmes, and development plans so that the citizens are made aware,” he said.

Dr.Nyale said there are several programmes being implemented by the national government that members of the public at the grassroots level were not aware of, “As civil servants you need to move out of the offices to meet with communities at their localities so that you explain what the government has for them, there are programmes such as the Youth Development Fund, Women Enterprise Fund, Hustler Fund phase two that the people need to understand how they can access.”
