Kakamega County Governor Fernandes Barasa will soon commission the chaplaincy to offer what he calls “services of a spiritual nature” and general support and guidance to his staff.
The new county boss, while speaking during a church service conducted by Rev. Father Alfred Ndalwala at St. Luke Bumini Catholic Church in Mumias East Sub-county on Sunday, reiterated the need for spiritual services to enhance service delivery to Kakamega residents.
“The chaplaincy will offer general support and guidance to staff and stakeholders while drawing attention to the spiritual values within various faiths,” he said.
The Governor seized the chance to explain his Maendelo na Usawa initiative geared toward ensuring equitable allocation of county resources to every ward.
Barasa also announced that the Shianda-Malaha road will be tarmacked to facilitate transport and communication between Matungu and Navakholo sub-counties as well as the neighboring Bungoma County with Kakamega County.
