Nyong’o presides over signing of performance contracts


Kisumu Governor Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o has expressed confidence that his administration would focus on improved services delivery to ensure that his pre-election pledges were realized before the end of his first term in office.

Nyong’o who is seeking reelection has lately embarked on a heightened campaign ahead of the 2022 polls gave the assurance after presiding over the signing of performance contract agreements of senior county executives in a bid to escalate service delivery within Kisumu.

“The signing of the Performance Contract Agreements signals a new dawn in best service delivery to the people of Kisumu County,” Nyong’o said while at the same time tasking all the county staff to account for their contributions to the development of the lakeside County.

Consequently, Nyong’os’ administration has set the exercise as part of a strategy to ensure that each department has clear and concise targets to achieve in the financial year 2021-2022. Also, the contracts would ensure that the public sector delivers to the people by outlining proper accountability mechanisms within the implemented units.

The contracts signed by the County Executive Committee Members (CECMs), Chief Officers, Directors and Departmental Heads was witnessed by the Assembly Speaker Elisha Oraro at a Kisumu hotel. 

In his speech, Oraro reminded the executives that they held positions of privilege and trust in the society and urged them to bring positive change to the County.

The Speaker exuded confidence that the Performance Contract tool would turn the plans of the County Government into actionable targets.

“The signing of the contracts will be instrumental in improving service delivery to the public by ensuring that holders of public office are held accountable for their results based on the resources entrusted to them,” Oraro said.

On his part, Deputy Governor Dr. Mathews Owili urged the CECMs to embrace the spirit of teamwork. He, however, challenged the officers to ensure that all procured projects were fully implemented within the recommended period.

The signing is a fulfillment of the administration’s commitment to ensure that departments are efficiently managed and are effective in delivering quality services,” Owili said.


The Directorate of Performance Management which is anchored under the County’s Special Delivery Unit spearheaded the performance contracting process.


The CECMs and heads of various departments will further cascade the document to other officers to help in achieving the specific departments’ vision.
