Nyong'o: Help fast-track Kisumu’s economy

15 January 2013, 16:27 Oduor Omondi

Medical Services Minister Prof. Anyang’ Nyong’o has challenged Kisumu business community to help fast-track the County’s political economy as the devolved system of government comes into place.

Prof. Nyong’o asked the business fraternity to play an active role in the fast changing economic development by giving their input instead of sitting back and looking ‘up the mountain expecting manna’.

Unveiling his manifesto for Kisumu County, Nyong’o who has declared interest in the senate seat stated that the county has lagged behind in terms of development due to lack of teamwork among pertinent players in the various sectors of the economy.

“Residents of Kisumu County should elect visionary leaders who would help spearhead economic development by fully exploiting the vast potential which have remained unexploited alongside the abundant human resource,” he argued.

Prof. Nyong’o said locals should develop interest in the mechanical removal of water hyacinth which has infested Lake Victoria and thus hindered transportation and fishing activities by handling it as a commercial venture.

The Minister said he fits the bill as the first Senator for Kisumu and warned the electorate against being swayed by handouts to install leadership that would not prioritize their development.

He said Nyanza Province has the highest number of school dropout rate only comparable to North Eastern and asked local leaders to focus their attention towards improving facilities in schools for better performance.

Prof. Nyong’o challenged the business community to not only invest in the academies for profit but also to improve the region’s education standards.
