The election year is fast approaching and leaders in the helms of power should wake up from their slumber and achieve all they had promised the netizens as they were seeking mandate into office.
Fast check on the dates it is like to me is not on the side of those seeking re-election in various capacities. We have only 2months to the election year. The electoral commission this week started the first trimester of new voter registration countrywide. This ushered new efforts by political world to awaken and try to make themselves relevant by selling their policies.
Here in nyamira County truly speaking what has been done by the devolved unit since the inception of devolution 10 years ago is quite insignificant. This is in comparison with other counties.
The functionality of the county government is clear in the Constitution and thus need has to be there for County leaders to deliver as per expectations. This major areas mandated to the counties deal with health, early childhood education and technical part, Agriculture, local infrastructure, environmental protection and general resources management In the county.
In the aforementioned areas the county government of Nyamira has done well at least on roads where road network has been created but not to a good standard.
Other areas where the leadership needs to emphasize before 2022 are health and environment protection. In health sector, the facilities are there but the management of the facilities is not good enough. The hospitals lack the medicines and the workforce appears not motivated to work accordingly. This means the county residents are not happy with work done . many citizens of nyamira are opting to seek medical services in kisii and Kericho counties because of this.
On the area of environment pollution it is not well taken care of . For example in Nyamira town there is no elaborate garbage collection put in place. It is dumped in the main street and it then picked not frequently enough.
Another area which needs to be looked at carefully is this on the timely completion of project initiated. Most project which have been started drag for long before being completed. This touches on roads alot. For example it is like 1 year ago when a project was initiated of opening streets in the nyamira town. It kicked of well so many buildings were destroyed but up to now it stalled and the affected people haven't been able to benefit from the roads which destroyed their property.
If indeed the current leadership has to to see the seat come 2022 they need to look into these areas well.
