County government committed to complete Projects

The Kisii County Government is committed to completing ongoing development projects initiated by the County in good time.

The projects were initiated purposely to improve on the resident’s social - economic welfare and Kisii county governor James Ongwae, while on a development tour of Kitutu Chache North and Kitutu Chache South sub counties said that he is committed to ensuring that all projects started by his government are completed in good time and effectively put to use.

“The projects that we have started should be completed very fast so that to help our people. The work of a government is to ease the burden on its residents by providing an enabling environment to do business and other activities” Said Ongwae.

He continued, “We are going to work round the clock to ensure great service delivery to our people.”

The Governor was speaking at Kenyoni area in Sensi Ward, where the county government is drilling a borehole.

Residents narrated their agony on how they trek more than four kilometers in search of the precious commodity.

“We are at a marginalized area.Water sources are far flung and this water project will go a long way in reducing the time our women and children spend on the way in search of water,” a resident narrated.

Once complete, the project will benefit up to 3,000 households in the region and even up to the neighboring Homabay County.

“We know you spend much time and walk for long distances to fetch water but we have made things easier by drilling this borehole and now you will get access to clean and safe water,” Ongwae promised.

Kisii County Commissioner, Godfrey Kigochi who was accompanying the Governor said the county government is doing its best to deliver services to its residents and showed his appreciation over the projects the governor has initiated.

“We are working hand in hand with the county government to ensure that these projects benefit the people of Kisii.”

He cited the executive order number 1 of 2019 that requires county commissioners to give regular reports on the status of government projects.

“In the spirit of the new order, it’s also important to find out what the county government is also doing, and by these visits, we get a chance to see the reality on the ground. The projects must directly benefit the people.” Kigochi said.

Sensi MCA, Paul Angwenyi appreciated the efforts made by the governor in redeeming them from water shortage and urged him to help construct good roads.

“Since independence this is the only governor who has remembered us. This area is landlocked,literaly thus making it difficult for residents to access even the market thus, I pledge with the governor to help us build good roads,”said Angwenyi.

Ongwae later toured projects in Marani sub-county hospital and delivered hospital equipment promising that the new hospital building will be completed in time.

“We have brought in X - ray machines, patient stretchers, wheel chairs, cold room equipment dental chairs, cardiac beds, among others.”

Ongwae promised to give a backup generator for x ray and three phase connection of power. He also promised to employ more doctors, clinical officers, and nurses to help patients.

Marani (MCA) Dennis Ombachi said he was happy with the county government and especially the hospital being expanded adding that Marani residents will now access good medical services.

He urged leaders to work together with the national government so that development can be realized and said his mandate is to deliver what he promised the residents.
