Bungoma county chief officers sworn into office

18 March 2014, 19:41

Bungoma - Ten nominees for the position of the county chief officers in Bungoma were on Monday sworn in to office after being approved by the local county assembly.  

Names of two individuals nominated by Governor Kenneth Lusaka, to serve in the same position which were rejected by the county assembly when they were tabled before the house a week ago, have been re-submitted to the assembly.  

Speaking at the swearing in ceremony, Lusaka said he had great faith that the team  of nominees who he noted  all  are  holders of masters’ degree and above coupled with experience both in public and private sector,will deliver on his manifesto.

“I am satisfied that this team is capable and properly placed to serve the people of Bungoma County. As accounting officers, they should discharge their duties with honesty and integrity. They will be held responsible for any misappropriation of funds in the dockets they are in charge,” said Lusaka, who noted that the swearing in of the officers is in conformity with Article 45 of the constitution.    

The governor reiterated the commitment of his government to deliver on the pre-elections pledges he made, and asked the chief officers to work closely with members of the county executive and other officers in the government to ensure that they come to fruition. “Members of the public want services, time of empty talk and stories is now over. We have to deliver as a team to the expectation of the public who send us to office,” said Lusaka.  

The nominees for chief officers sworn into office  are Martin Talian (Environment and Natural resources) Evans Fwamba (Tourism and Forestry) , John Mukhwana (Water) and Robert Simiyu (Land, Urban and Physical Planning). Others are David Kibiti (Education , science and ICT) , Jacob Okisegere (Livestock and Fisheries), and Herbert Kibunguchi (Roads and Public Works).  

The women chief officers sworn into office were: Consolata Wakwabubi (Public Administration), Christine Wasike (Gender and Culture) , and Monica Fedha (Agriculture and Cooperative).    The names of Peter Mukenya (Finance) and Chrispinus Barasa( Trade and Energy) who were rejected by the county assembly, have been re-submitted back to the county assembly.
