Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong has said the team he will constitute will be that of service delivery adding that there will be no room for joy riders in his administration.
In his key note address after being sworn in by Justice Anthony Murima as the Governor of Busia speaking at the Busia County Stadium on Monday, the Governor promised to constitute a good team to foster development in the County.
To signal his desire to boost the health sector in the County, Ojaamong said his Government will from this month start paying the over 3,000 Community Health Volunteers who have been offering services for free.
” There will be no need to transfer patients to County Referral Hospitals if such cases diseases can be controlled at sub county hospitals. The volunteers deserves motivation.
” I have gotten a good crop of MPs. We shall now work together to steer the county to greater heights. I will also endeavor to incorporate my opponents in my administration. They have enough expertise to help push the agenda of the county forward. I will also work with Busia Senator Amos Wako to help build Busia by jointly sourcing for investors.
I want to constitute a team to push the County’s agenda forward, adding that everybody will be scrutinized. If you fail in service delivery don’t blame me if you are left out.
He promised to enhance Sports budget so as to promote sports that abound in the county. ” I will take sports seriously. Busia has talents in various disciplines, thus the need to focus on the sector,” he said.
Ojaamong appealed to President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto to convene a meeting with NASA co-principals Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka to stem political tension that is threatening to tear the country asunder.
Deputy Governor Moses Mulomi said Busia residents have lived in peace and campaigned in peace. ” When we start work let’s work as a team to develop the county.”
