Governor Prof. Lonyangapuo has said that in light of the county’s development agenda which is pegged on the 3 Es, internal and external resource mobilization is critical to the county’s sustainable development.
The governor made the assertion during the opening of a two-day workshop which was geared towards the adoption of the recently developed Resource Mobilization Strategy. The two-day workshop was held at Skynest Hotel, Kitale.
Governor Prof. Lonyangapuo said that it was important for all county staff to adopt the document which will be integral in resource mapping and its mobilization.
“We still have a lot of work to develop our county. To be able to achieve that, we need a vibrant team that will prioritize our county’s agenda.” He stated.
He however put emphasis on the need for the two documents, the County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP) and the Resource Mobilization Strategy, to be aligned together.
“These two documents will provide a direction for our county. These documents need to speak one language. I’m happy that most of the staff have largely been involved in its developmet.”
The consultants led by David Ngige said that the document will provide critical direction in harnessing resources. He urged the county officials to accelerate the process of linking with potential partners.
Elizabeth Gichuki- Resource Mobilzation and Donor Coordination assured that her directorate will work closely with other departments to streamline efforts towards resource mobilization.
The workshop CECs Luka Chepelion, Joel Arumonyang, Augustine Monges, Ruth Kisabit, Emily Chepogisho, Christine Apakoreng, Francis Kitelauyan, Cos and other county officials attend.
