Plans underway to set up a Huduma center in Kimilili

Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa has said that his Kimilili Constituency development fund will spend Sh10 million to set up a Huduma center.

In an interview with the press, Barasa said the move will ease residents’ pain to travel to Bungoma town to seek Huduma center services.

Barasa noted that it has been strenuous for the residents to get identification cards replacement as the Huduma center situated in Bungoma town is far. “I have been getting complaints from locals that they are struggling to get government services.

I have appealed to the national office to establish a Huduma center here in Kimilili so that my people can get services,” Barasa added.

The vocal MP added that Huduma center is mandated to transform public service delivery in order to ensure efficient, effective accessible and citizen- centric services.

There are 52 Huduma centers spread across the 47 counties.

However, the legislator affirmed that his office will partner with the Huduma Kenya secretariat to ensure the objectives of the programme of sustaining partnerships, collaborations and linkages for the integrated service delivery platforms are met.

He said that if the plan receives legal backing, members of the public from his constituency and surrounding areas will receive crucial services at the one stop facility.

In addition, the MP said that through the NG-CDF he has constructed new blocks of classrooms to accommodate CBC learners in a conducive environment to learn.

He added that he has ensured Kimilili schools have met the CBC requirements saying that they are ready to receive junior secondary school learners.

Barasa said that the new curriculum needs enough support from the NG-CDF.

Barasa appealed to school heads to stop sending away learners for school fees and other levies.

“We lost a lot of time during the Covid-19 lockdown hence we expect teachers to use the time available to recover and streamline the education calendar,” he said.
