Bungoma - The County government of Bungoma has unveiled a memorial altar plaque in a bid to stop temptations that have been facing the County and painting it in bad light.
Governor Ken Lusaka said that the holy altar will help reduce the challenges the County has been facing that have affected it negatively.
The Governor said that they will turn to God who will deal with the County issues and ensure that things are done in the right way for development to be realized.
“We don’t have to depend on an ordinary man for our plans to succeed but we have to depend on God who is the Almighty Father and He will answer our prayers. This is why we are dedicating this altar plaque before God who will ensure that as a County we succeed,” said Lusaka.
He called on the County residents to turn to prayer if they wish to succeed because it is the only means of fighting all temptations and making sure that the County prospers.
The County has been on spot for purchasing 10 Wheelbarrows for KES 1 million.
Bungoma County woman Rep, Reginalda Wanyonyi called on the clergy to dedicate the County to daily prayers to avoid the temptations that are putting the County in the wrong direction.
“This is our County and the recent negative events are have portrayed us in bad light. Let’s repent and turn to the Lord for prayers,” she said.
She said that Bungoma is a blessed County and there are few leaders who are being used to malign its good name and portray it as a failed County.
Anglican Church of Kenya Bungoma County Bishop, George Mechumo said that as clergy they will keep on praying for the County government to ensure that it runs its affairs in a godly manner.

“It’s only through prayer that the County will prosper and realize its destiny; let the elected and appointed leaders depend on the Lord who is the only way to success,” said Bishop Mechumo.
Apostle John Kimani from Nakuru who unveiled and anointed the altar asked the County leadership to turn to prayers if they want to succeed in future.
He said that local leaders and residents had forsaken God and that is the reason He was punishing them.
“God loves all of you but you must turn to Him if you want your prayers answered. I'm dedicating all of you to God so that He can fight all your wars and ensure that prosperity is seen in Bungoma County,” said Apostle Kimani.
Chief Officer Public Administration, David Kibiti said that the altar is symbolic in nature and shows that the County depends on God in all their undertakings.
