Governor Cyprian Awiti today witnessed the swearing in of the newly appointed ten county executive committee members at the county headquarters.
The swearing in ceremony conducted by Principal Magistrate Susan Ndegwa took place after successful vetting and later approval of the ten cabinet committee members by the County Assembly.
Governor Awiti commended the Homabay County Assembly for expediting the vetting and approval process.
“I have a lot of confidence in my new cabinet and I reassure the people of Homa bay that this team has the ability to deliver services according to the constitution.” said Governor Awiti
He cautioned detractors and called for support to his new cabinet. He said they have to be given room to deliver services effectively.
The County Chief thanked the outgoing CECs for having laid a proper foundation and for championing the spirit of devolution in Homabay County. He further challenged the newly appointed cabinet to continue in earnest writing the next chapter of the devolution story. He urged them to discharge their mandates in conformity with the law and use the County Integrated Development Plan as a road map for development.
The county chief said the best support the cabinet can give his government is to work efficiently by signing performance contracts, purposely to measure and evaluate their performance within their respective departments.
Awiti reiterated his call for them to give quality service to all.
“As much as you will be responsible to me, you will also be working closely with other key stakeholders that include The County Assembly, Public Service Board, National Government Authorities, Independent Commissions, the Private sector and the people of Homa Bay.” He added
He later led the public to spearhead the Safaricom product boycott fronted by NASA in his county. While addressing the public during an Airtel registration exercise, he called for peace and told citizens to avoid destroying property while demonstrating saying this will hurt the economy of Homa Bay.
