Bungoma County Govt on a benchmarking tour

18 February 2014, 11:21 Arap Yego

Bungoma - Members of both the legislative and executive arm of the Bungoma county government began a seven day tour Monday that will see them visit three counties for purposes of benchmarking.

The deputy governor, all the members of the Bungoma County Executive Committee (CEC) and  Members of the County Assembly (MCAs) are expected in the trip,  according to Governor Kenneth Lusaka.

Speaking to the media, Lusaka said the team which he led on Monday paid  a courtesy call to Machakos Governor  Dr Alfred Mutua and his executive and legislative members. The team is expected to meet  Nairobi Governor Dr Evans Kidero on Tuesday.

“We will meet the two governors and their MCAs and Members of the County Executive in the first two days to exchange ideas and learn from each other. We believe we will learn a lot from benchmarking locally than if we went outside the country,” said the governor.

“We will head to Mombasa on Wednesday for a team building and bonding exercise that begins in the evening until Friday. We will be joined by Senator Moses Wetang’ula and the 10 Members of Parliament from the constituencies making up Bungoma County,” said Lusaka.

The bonding session is expected to bring to an end the existing subtle political supremacy battles between MCAs allied to  Senator Moses Wetangula led Ford Kenya and New Ford Kenya party of Eugene Wamalwa parties in Bungoma County.

It will also be a forum for the Bungoma governor and senator, who are thought  to have strained relationships, emanating from Lusaka’s action in the recently held by-elections to back Wetang’ula rival Musikari Kombo, to bond. The two leaders will also have a chance to interact with the MPs, some of whom it is rumoured don’t see each other eye-to eye.
