Bungoma county healthcare workers have been called upon to work and serve the community with passion and commitment.
Speaking at Mabanga where 187 recruited health care staffers were receiving their appointment letters, Governor Wangamati congratulated them and emphasized on them being committed to work hard and tirelessly towards the success of the service delivery in the health centers of Bungoma county.
“Health is so crucial in service delivery in this county and health services are real you can’t wait so please just do your best. Serve the county, serve the people of Bungoma county, “said governor Wangamati.
He further noted that through his leadership, those who will do well will be given an opportunity to grow in the county government but also cautioned those who will bore no fruits that they will have a problem.
“You have been given an opportunity, you must work and ensure that at the end of the day you are doing well at your work place and our commitment to you is that when you do well you will have an opportunity to rise within the county government and within the ministry of health,” he said.
He assured the residents of Bungoma that more funds will be directed into health which will see some projects finished like building 100-bed capacity hospitals one in Bumula and another one in Naitiri.
He expressed his satisfaction towards the coming up of devolution noting that it’s the best thing that ever happened in Kenya.
“The best thing that happened to Kenya is the 2010 constitution. A shilling spend at a national level compared to a shilling spend in the county government, a shilling in the county government level is more accountable and more transparent because at the county there are so many eyes looking at that shilling where its being spend.
“It is what is revoking us to vote in the building bridges initiative because we want more resources to come down for it will make it easier in increasing resources from national government to county government.
“When am here as a governor I understand the issues of Bungoma county better than a cabinet secretary sitting in Nairobi and so accountability and transparency is better at the county level and that’s why we are emphasizing on voting in BBI,”he noted
