Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu has intensified calls for the fight against poverty in the county. This comes in a time when the county administration is on the verge of ensuring that all farmers benefit from the County government and Red Cross Kenya partnership that seeks to distribute seeds countywide.
Addressing faithful’s of ACK St. Martins church in Kitui in a service on Sunday October 15th, the county CEO expressed interest in fighting the abject levels of poverty in the county that presently rate at 62%, a significantly higher margin ranking in the country yet a very potentially wealthy county in the republic.
Ngilu said that the church has a key role in advocating for good governance and unity in the country in a service that was attended by among others the ACK Arc-Bishop Jackson Ole Sapit. The Governor echoed that she is equal to the task and pledged to ensure transformation in all key sectors of development including education and health where she revealed that she will be approaching foreign organizations to support her development ventures.
The once Health Minister highlighted her plan to have all county residents benefit from the health policy that will offer subsidies to guarantee that every person in Kitui secures health insurance at affordable charges by early 2018.
Arc-Bishop Ole Sapit urged Kenyans to unite and pray for the unfolding political events so that the country may experience peace ahead of the forthcoming elections.
