Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong has encouraged Busia County Residents to give credit where it’s due instead of spending much of their time in endless criticism.
Speaking at Chakol Catholic Church during a funds drive in aid of the construction of Parish Offices, the Governor said his administration does not fear criticisms if it Is done constructively.
“The County Government won Sh553, 000million from the world Bank through the Kenya Development Support Programme because of good performance. Detractors don’t see that but instead paint the government in bad light,” he said.
He said raising such huge sum of money, for efficient service delivery, is no mean achievement. It would take over a decade to raise such an amount in funds drives.
The Governor said they are discharging their duties diligently with his team of dedicated officers. “Development funds will be used to complete stalled and incomplete projects.”
“We have made frantic efforts with Busia Women Representative Florence Mutua and other leaders to ensure Busia Sugar Industry is up and running. With the factory already granted an operating license, it will create over 1000 job opportunities farmers who will deliver their cane to the factory,” he said.
Busia Women Representative Florence Mutua, MPs Geoffrey Omuse (Teso South) and Fred Ouda (Kisumu Central) who represented Chie Guest Senator Gedion Moi were present.
Those from the County Government included Chief Officers Priscah Omoit (Finance), Dr Isaac Omeri (Health), Stephen Nasiagi (Roads), Ezekiel Okwach (Office of the Governor) and Directors (Timothy Odede (Fisheries) and Paul Onono (Accounting Services).
