BUSIA COUNTY TO FASTRACK LEGAL FRAMEWORKS

The County Government of Busia has made a milestone in fast-tracking the legal frameworks outlined in the County Government Act so as to provide good services to the people, Chief Officer in the Office of the Governor, Ezekiel Okwach has said.

Speaking during a consultative meeting between County Government  and Civil Society Organizations ‘ representatives at Rastopark  Hotel on Tuesday,  Dr. Okwach  said  they  will work together with  CSOs  in  realizing this dream for the county.

“We want Busia to be ahead  in terms of  making Legal Frameworks,  and in terms of making  service delivery to be conducive to the people who are getting these services and making sure citizens get the information they want and at the right time when they need it.’’

The meeting came up with six point action plan to be executed by the County Government, County Assembly and other players by 30th June 2019.

CSOs want the fast tracking and enactment of the decentralized units, Public Participation and Monitoring and Evaluation Acts.

Community Empowerment and Development Centre Coordinator Willis Sumba urged the County to invest more in social media.” I am happy the County Government’s twitter and Facebook are very active though they should strive to provide more and more information to the public. The County’s website also needs to be updated regularly and more information posted,’’ he said.

Sumba said County Governments take the lead in public participation compared to National Government despite receiving only 15 per cent of the total budget.
