His Excellency Governor (Dr.) Moses Kiarie Badilisha has this afternoon overseen the swearing-in of County Executive Committee Members in a colorful ceremony at the County Headquarters, Ol’Kalou.
The eleven – ten CECMs and one County Attorney – were sworn in by the Principal Magistrate Patricia Gichohi in the presence of Governor Badilisha, his deputy His Excellency Mathara Mwangi, the Speaker of the County Assembly Hon. Stephen Waiganjo, Members of the County Assembly and a host of other leaders drawn from across the county.
Addressing the new cabinet members, the Governor reminded them that “our people are anxious for results, they want changes in their hospitals, in the management of public service, and in good motorable roads. The citizens are demanding for a responsive Government that provides sustainable solutions to the current drought ravaging our land; they want water for domestic and irrigation use. What our people are asking for is an improvement in their agriculture. The citizens are legitimately asking for solutions; and because we promised, we have no option but to deliver.”
Wishing them success in serving the people and discharging their oath of office, the County head reminded them: “The social contract we have with the citizens is binding, and they will, at the end of our term, cash the cheque of expectations and Manifesto promises we have made to them. This cheque we have issued must never bounce. The duty to credit our bank with legitimacy, trust and delivery of promises begins immediately. Go serve the people.”
