KNA Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya has reiterated that he will not relax in his quest to deliver services to residents until the end of his second and final term in office in August 2022.
Governor Mvurya said he will be strengthening institutions and improving the performance of key departments like health, education, agriculture and infrastructure which provide critical services to the public.
He said he will target these departments due to having a high share of county public servants as well as use of huge public resources to deliver critical services.
“Ordinarily, I would be relaxing as my term comes to a close but will not do that but instead scale up service delivery to the public until the last day of my term because I made a vow when assuming office in 2013 and 2017” he said.
The county boss said his administration has made great development strides since 2013 adding that this should continue beyond 2022.
The Governor made the remarks in his office when he received a delegation from the Nation Media Group led by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Stephen Itagama.
The media team was in Kwale to cement partnership relations in areas of development publicity and cooperation.
Itagama applauded Governor Mvurya’s development record saying his visionary leadership had placed Kwale on the national and international map.
“We are overwhelmed by the development projects in Kwale County. It’s unique”, said Itagama.
Governor Mvurya and his deputy Fatuma Achani took the delegation for a tour of projects including cabro roads at Kwale town, the Sh450 million Kwale county stadium, the Sh120 million Kombani Wholesale Market, Kombani Methadone and rehabilitation Center and Mvindeni-Lotfa tarmac road.
The Governor and the visiting delegation were accompanied by County Executives Hemed Mwabudzo (Roads), Ramadhan Bungale (Social Services), Sylvia Chidodo (Public Service and Administration), Saumu Beja (Lands), Nassib Nyahi (Tourism) and Martin Kuya (Water).
