His Excellency Zachary Okoth Obado has this morning officiated the opening of the Migori county level four hospital CT- scan centre at Migori County Referral Hospital. This is a milestone in Medical services delivery in Migori County. Previously we have been referring basic cases of computerised tomography (CT) scan and Magnetic Resonance Imaging(MRI) to other neighbouring facilities in Eldoret kisumu, Tenwek and recently Kisii which in turn was so costly and service delivery was also delayed.
His Exellency has also launched the County Intergrated Developement plan 2018 - 2023, the National Health Sector Strategic Plan and Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) budgeting process of the County Government. The Strategic Plan focuses on various issues including the expansion of health infrastructure where we intend to upgrade Migori County Referral Hospital to a Teaching and Referral Hospital; Kuria West Sub County Hospital to a Level Five Hospital and 14 other hospitals to Level Four status. Thank you and May God bless you all.
Kenya Vision 2030 highlights rapid urbanization as one of four key challenges facing the country. However, Kenya is still under-urbanized. Therefore there is potential to leverage urbanization for improving economic opportunities and living conditions. The Government of Kenya has recognized the need to manage urbanization as part of its overall development strategy.
Giving is an act of worship to honour and glorify God and to show our love for God. In this spirit, the governor joined Adventists and fellow leaders at a fundraising event at Kadika SDA Church in aid of the construction of a Camp site. It was indeed a great Sabbath!
Thank you for your warm welcome and May God bless you all.
