Homa Bay County to work with national government

National Government has pledged to work closely with the County Governments in ensuring that the Big Four Agenda and Vision 2030 are realized.
Speaking Wednesday at ACK guest house in Homa Bay town during medium term County dissemination forums, Administration Secretary in the state department of Public Service Youth and Gender affairs Muktar Abdi said that the Government was committed to ensure one hundred percent transition to secondary education was achieved.
Muktar said that the completion of all the ongoing projects in the Counties and Development of Technical, Vocational Education and Training structures, the fight against corruption, the increase of tree cover from 6.9 per cent to 10 per cent, provision of clean water and universal health as stated in the President’s Big Four agenda was met by 2022.
The workshop that brought together officials from both levels of government which was graced by the County Commissioner Homa Bay County Irungu Macharia agreed to pull together and avoid divisive politics to ensure service delivery to common citizen.
Giving his presentation the County Secretary Isaiah Ogwe who represented Governor Cyprian Awiti, said that public participation was key in service delivery as it helps the county to know what ought to be prioritized.
Ogwe added that the delay in the completion of some projects in the county was not because the county government was not committed but because of the limited revenue basket adding that the Governor was committed to leave behind a legacy.
“We are not sleeping on the job as alleged by some people but the delays even in paying the county government workers is because the treasury does not release money in time,” he said.
The economic advisor in the office of the governor Ruth Aloo said that all the governor’s promises were in tandem with the president’s Big Four Agenda and therefore they would be fulfilled by 2022.
