County govt workers to sign performance contracts

20 March 2013, 18:06 Oduor Omondi

Those yearning to work at the Kisumu county government offices will be required to sign performance contracts so that their productivity can be measured.

Kisumu county Governor - elect Jack Ranguma has said the move is aimed at improving service delivery in the county.

"This directive is not meant to make people shy away from applying for jobs in my office, neither is it intended to punish them, but this is in a bid to ensure that they deliver quality services,"  Ranguma said.

“I have a performance contract with the people of Kisumu who elected me and will equally require my employees to embrace it for efficient work,” he added.

Ranguma said he will initiate various development projects in the county to boost the KES 6 billion allocated for development.

“KES 6 billion alone is not enough for Kisumu since it has assumed a city status. We will therefore outsource for funds to ensure rapid growth of this county,” he said.

He promised to strive to ensure revival of collapsed industries in order to generate employment opportunities.

“I will also offer special attention to ship building and lake transport, and also promote tourism based on the available resources anchored on Kisumu International Airport,” he said.

He pointed out that he will ensure sugarcane and rice farming which are the county’s main economic activities are prioritized in production for economic empowerment of the County.

He also pointed out with the rehabilitation of the Kisumu International Airport, he will put in place measures to ensure it works for the benefit of the local people through creation of employment.

Other priorities he said he will address are water, infrastructure, health and education in the entire county.
