CS Owalo ask Nyanza residents to cooperate with Government on development

Information, Communications, and the Digital Economy Cabinet Secretary (CS), Eliud Owalo has challenged Nyanza residents to create a conducive environment for the government to deliver on its development mandate in the region.

Owalo said it was time for a paradigm shift from rhetoric politics to a tangible transformation and development-oriented agenda that will see the region realize fast economic development.

He was speaking at his Asembo home in Rarieda, Siaya county when he met religious leaders from the Nyanza region.

The cabinet secretary said that development can only thrive in an atmosphere of peace but not perpetual noise and distraction.

 “We have done politics year in, year out. We cannot continue like this. We must change the politics of this region,” he said.

Owalo said that the government was committed to delivering on its promise to all Kenyans, adding that for the first time, the country has got a president who is keen on rolling out tangible development programs in Nyanza.

“Let us be part of the government. Those who do not want, we shall bring the government to them by way of development,” he said.

The cabinet secretary assured the church that the Kenya Kwanza government considers the church an integral stakeholder of its administration and will integrate it into its programs.

Siaya county commissioner, Jim Njoka who also addressed the meeting called on church leaders to support the presidential task force on religious affairs by giving their views.

“This is a historical moment for you and you should participate fully by giving your views to the task force,” said Njoka.
