Hosted Former Prime Minister and the ODM Party Leader, Rt. Hon Raila Odinga, CS for Public Service, and Affirmative Action and Gender, Hon. Aisha Jumwa, Taita Taveta Governor H.E Andrew Mwadime, Mombasa Governor H.E Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir, other political leaders, religious leaders, residents and people of all walks of life to a thanksgiving ceremony in my home Dabaso.
It has been a milestone since I started my political journey, which hasn’t been easy at all. As such, I cannot take it for granted the far that God has brought me. Equally l cannot forget my supporters who have been with me throughout the journey, providing moral and spiritual support when I almost had the urge to despair.
As I celebrate this day, I reflect on what we have done since we formed the government, citing examples such as prioritizing health by providing medicine to all the health centers in Kilifi County, with the Malindi sub-county hospital free surgical camp being the latest one and has benefited 84 patients, who got free surgeries. We also introduced free ambulance services within Kilifi County.
On matters land, we have partnered with the national government, embraced the Environment and Land Court which will solve long-standing land injustices. We have equally introduced legal land clinics which will provide wananchi with civic education on land matters. We have further gotten a partner who will desalinate salty water and make it clean and safe for the people of Kaloleni. The program is to cover 89 kms within Kaloleni. We have in place programs to come up with Kilifi Teaching and Referral Hospital.
The boda boda sector is also not left out as we have rolled out a program to come up with boda boda saccos which will eventually lead to the abolition of the ksh.300 boda boda fee.
I believe there is more we can do to achieve the best in this great county.
I call upon the people of this great county to support me and my government so that we can make a niche for ourselves and plant the name of this county on the world map amongst the best performers.
Thank you all and may God bless you.
