Community councils streamline service delivery

Community Area Council is the last administrative unit of the Kakamega County Governance structure that directly links the county government and residents of far flung areas.

The Community Area Council members are officers employed by the county government who get stipends while supervising progress of county government projects in their area of operation.

They also act as a conveyor of information from the county government to residents while at the same time convey information from community members to the county government.

Speaking to KNA, County Secretary James Ochami said the County government employed over 8000 community area council members drawn from over 400 communities across the county.

He said each council area consists of 20 eminent persons, most of whom are opinion leaders with expertise in the sectors of Health, Education, Environment, Roads and Agriculture.

“Formation of Councils as the lowest governance structure in Kakamega has enabled the county government to improve on service delivery. Part of their mandate is to supervise projects, ensure they are of high standards to save us from wastage of public resources,” he said.

From the Council Members, the county government governance structure consists of community administrators, Ward Administrators, Sub County Administrators, County Directors of Departments, Chief Officers, County Executive Committee Members, Deputy Governor then the governor.
