Why I need to leave a legacy- Busia Governor

Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong  has said his vision  and focus  for Busia County  is to leave a legacy  to be emulated by his successors.

” I am determined  to leave a legacy when I exit office. It will be my joy  to see a better  County with happier people,” he said.

In a speech read on his behalf by  Acting Matayos Sub County Administrator Frida  Nekesa  during  the 55th Madaraka Day  celebrations  at Busia County Stadium, the Governor  said he will not tolerate lip service  in his administration.

” Unlike my previous  cabinet  members who had a five-year contract,  I have given my new team a two-year contract. The renewal of their contracts will be based on service delivery to the people of Busia County.

Members of the public  will also have a say  in the manner in which  my officers  deliver service in their respective departments.  We shall take  wanachi’s petitions seriously,” he said.

The Governor said the dream for a prosperous county   cannot be achieved in isolation  but through concerted efforts  of all the people, including  leaders and stakeholders.

Ojaamong outlined  what his government will do  in the next five years of his final tenure in office. They include establishing  one model ECDE centre in each  of the 35 wards in the county.

” We shall construct and refurbish  seven vocational training centres  of excellence, one in every sub county. We shall also establish a scholarship scheme  to sponsor one bright  student every financial year  in each of the  35wards  to undertake core career    such as engineering or medicine,”  he said.

My Government,  through the partnership  with the National Government  and other partners , is keen  on decongesting  Busia and Malaba Towns  through expansion  of major highways  and construction  of trailer parks  in these two towns.

Busia County Commissioner Michael  Tialal led the celebrations.  Busia County was represented by First Lady Judy Ojaamong, Agriculture Executive  Dr Moses Osia  and  Chief Officer in the Governor’s  Office  Ezekiel Okwach.
