I salute the people of Nyamira and the Nation of Kenya. And welcome you to Nyamira County. ‘A place to belong’.
The county has unique features, challenges and opportunities which we vowed to take up and tackle. Mohatma Gandhi Said “the greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated”.
Our resolve remains to bring together all the available resources, identify the opportunities and purposefully take an integrated approach to have all policies programmes and activities in the county aligned towards raising the welfare and sustainable quality of life and healing our society, people and ecosystems.
The county system of governance has given us an opportunity to serve the people at the local level and I confess it is a humbling experience.
Government formation enabled me realize the great human resource the county has, I call on all who expressed desire to serve the county in various capacities but were unsuccessful to join us in the development path.
I wish to thank my team of highly qualified professionals in their various fields who have agreed at a sacrifice to leave high paying engagements to work with me in a bid to serve the people of Nyamira and wish them all the best in their execution of duty.
We acknowledge that in the past the county like all other areas in the country was faced with the challenges of unproductive
