The Deputy Governor for Turkana County Dr John Erus is leading a delegation of County Chief Officers from various County departments in an Induction which has entered day 2 of work-based training at Lower Kabete, Kenya School of Government.
In an event which was officiated by the Deputy Governor at the institution yesterday, he said to have been satisfied with the list of appointed teams expected to gear county operations toward service delivery to the people of Turkana County.
The induction comes barely a fortnight from the day they were sworn into office in a ceremony which was held at Ekaales’ Center ( Tobong Lore ground) and witnessed by Turkana County Governor Hon.Jeremiah Lomorukai Ekamais, a delegation of Members of County Assembly, County women representative and elected Members of National Assembly.
The appointed Chief Officers included a representative of people with disabilities and minority groups. He expressed faith in the team’s ability to fulfil the County’s mandate and effectively oversee projects aligned with the Governor’s Manifesto and emphasized that the training would serve to incarnate their work.
He added that this was the first time County appointments have been done and distributed equally across the sub-counties with special consideration to people living with disabilities and the minority group.
” Our governor is a very equitable leader who has centred the people’s interest for Turkana County at his heart. That is why amongst you are people coming from the 7 sub-counties to represent the rest. He has also considered gender and other factors .” he concluded.
With the appointment report showing that each candidate holds at least a university degree, he has called them to use their experience and academic know-how to help the Governor realize his 9-point agenda aiming at transforming and improving the quality and standards of living for the residents residing in Turkana County.
The induction is expected to end in the course of this month
