Bungoma Senator Wafula Wakoli is now calling on Governor Kenneth Lusaka to take a bold move and sack County Executive Committee members who are incompetent.

Speaking to the press over the weekend, Wakoli decried the poor services the CECs are rendering to the locals.

He asked Governor Lusaka to fire those who don’t want to work and better service delivery in the county.

“Those who don’t want to work should quit and stay at home. My work is to bring money to Bungoma and at the same time to oversight it and ensure that it is put in prudent use,” he said.

Wakoli regretted that Bungoma received the ex-chequer like any other county but the services locals are receiving are very poor, referring to the death of a woman at Webuye County Hospital last week due to delayed transfer.

“I’m very annoyed with the negligence that happened at Webuye County Hospital that resulted in the death of a woman. Let everybody handle his department well, I don’t want to hear about such cases again in the future,” Wakoli stated.

“Lack of vivid communication and proper coordination within the health ministry in Bungoma is the one causing this confusion.” 

Wakoli asked Lusaka to adhere to his call arguing that this will smoothen service delivery in the departments.

The Senator ordered the Bungoma County Assembly Committee on Health and Sanitation led by Musikoma MCA George Makari to summon health heads of departments to appear before the committee and submit a report that will be used at the senate.

In addition, Wakoli pledged to move around all health facilities to check the situation.

“I’m going to move around the entire county in all the departments to ascertain the services that are ongoing,” he said.
