Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong has said his journey to leave a legacy upon expiry of his second and final term in 2022 as per the constitution will start this week.
Speaking at St Anthony Chakol Parish Catholic Church during a Mass and the launch of the second Liturgical Album by the Parish Choir, Ojaamong said his government will kick start activities aimed at improving service delivery.
County Governments have been operating without development funds from the exchequer, a feat that saw no activity being executed. This forced the Council of Governor’s chairman Josephat Nanok making formal complaint to the National Government.
Ojaamong said they are expecting funds to start trickling in very soon to facilitate the completion of incomplete projects and other activities to benefit county residents.
” We have Sh8million which was set aside for women small scale traders. Other funds that will be disbursed includes Higher Education Loans Board, Agricultural Development, Cooperative and Bursary Funds.
” My Government is not for gambling. I am delivering services to wananchi based on my campaign manifesto. I am determined to bring changes in various sectors,” he said.
Teso South MP Geoffrey Omuse said he has requested the intervention of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission to audit the CDF books of accounts.
Omuse said he was prompted to seek EACC intervention due to failure by her predecessor Mary Emaase to pay students sponsored by the Fund at KCA Amagoro Campus amounting to Sh10m. I have pleaded with the Campus administration to readmit the students as a solution was being founded,” he said.
Busia Assembly Speaker Bernard Wamalwa, Nangina MCA John Obwogo and Members of the County Assembly Moses Ouma (Amukura Central) and John Oganga (Marachi West) said they will wait for direction from NASA whether to honour the elections or no.
