Nyamira legislators advised to work in unity to develop the county

KNA       Cabinet secretary (CS) for Interior and Coordination of National Government Dr. Fred Matiang’í has urged legislators in Nyamira County to work as a team to bring the intended development in the county. 

Dr. Matiang’i said endless political wrangles have been a major contributor in stalling development in the region a scenario that must be contained.           

“Endless political wrangles in the County Assembly will continue derailing development in this County thus disadvantaging residents who have a right to development and portraying leaders as selfish, unfocussed and who do not have any interest in meeting the development needs of the common mwananchi,” the CS observed. 

He said this yesterday at Tombe Girls Secondary school while presiding over the official opening of a laboratory complex in the institution funded courtesy of Safaricom Foundation.

“I’m urging the elected leaders to hold candid talks with Members of the County Assembly (MCAs) and guide them on having constructive discussions in the assembly which will enable them make sound judgment on development matters, for without it, residents will always complain of poor services from government,” Dr. Matiangi appealed. 

Dr. Matiangi suggested that Members of Parliament, senator and women representative quickly convene and brainstorm and how they can advise the MCAs on how to conduct healthy debates in executing their mandates rather than shameless in-house fights which have dented their image. This comes after the County Assembly of Nyamira rejected the Governor’s choice of nominated Deputy Governor on Tuesday this week claiming he failed to meet the qualifications to enable him hold the office.   

Dr. Matiangi promised to upgrade Tombe area to have a full-fledged police station to curb rampart incidents of insecurity. 

He further challenged area education officials to strategize on improving more schools in the region for them to be upgraded to national schools to contain the huge student populations being experienced in two national schools in the County. 

“Infrastructural facilities in two national schools in the County; Sironga and Nyambaria are already over stretched and don’t have capacity to take in more students, the reason I’m challenging area education officials to start identifying schools within the county which government can allocate resources to improve them to national level so they can also take up students to ease congestion in the two that are already full beyond capacity,” the CS advised.
