Eight MPs have vowed to work with Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong to help push the development agenda of the County to greater heights.
MPs-elect John Bunyasi (Nambale), Oku Kaunya (Teso North), Geoffrey Omuse (Teso South), Geoffrey Odanga (Matayos), Oundo Mudenyo (Funyula), Joseph Oyula (Butula), Raphael Wanjala (Budalangi) and Women Representative Florence Mutua urged the Governor to foster unity of Busia County.
Mutua promised to work together as a team and utilize tano tena (five year second term) to work thrice as harder to enhance service delivery as she completes her second and last term.
Odanga said no to disunity that was evident among MPs in the last parliament, adding that he wants to see Busia take position one among other counties in the country.
Oku Kaunya pledged to work with the Governor in the realization of the aspirations of Teso North residents, adding that the region stagnated in development due to sharp division between area leaders and the County leadership.
Wanjala said the re-election of the Governor confirms the confidence the people of Busia have in his leadership. ” It is my hope you will leave a legacy that will leave us united the way we have been.”
Omuse said he has faith in the Governor and hoped that he will leave a legacy when he exits the County leadership in 2022, adding that he had vast experience to help the Governor push the County’s agenda forward.
Bunyasi said the county had a good team of legislators to help push the County agenda forward, adding that the Western MPs Caucus will be constituted with the new leadership to work together for the benefit.
Dr Mudenyo said despite the well hard-fought battle the Governor emerged victorious. ” Our appeal is for you to foster unity of Busia County as you start discharging your mandate in your second and final term,” he said.
Oyula said the period of politicking has gone and urged him to work closely with the MPs to develop the County. ” Give health sector a priority to reduce death rates.
We love you so much H.E. the Governor . Help the people of Busia to grow in business and everything they need. I also thank the people of Busia supporting you. You are indeed hard-working,” he said.
Busia County Assembly Speaker Bernard Wamalwa said the second term will mark the Governor’s legacy and assured him of the County Assembly support if he will get another chance of serving them.
