Kisumu County Elders Forum has back the executive cabinet nominees saying the nomination have invariably reflected and represented the faces of the entire County.

The Forum Chairman Walter Adel Kitoto said the nominated candidates have the academic qualifications and technical skills required to implement the county’s development agenda.

“The nominees have wide, long and solid working experiences and commitment in their respective dockets,” said Kitoto.

The elders also added that nomination has gender parity and professionalism as required by the constitution.

The elders called upon the Nyando MP to toe the County’s development dream and further urged the County Ward Representatives to vet and approve the County executive nominees to enable the Governor Ranguma to spur development with speed and accuracy.

However they challenged the nominees to desist from politics and drive the county’s economy forward saying the residents wants service delivery.

“We are tired of politics that keeps on driving our economy backward. It is high time that we should shun our self-interest for the benefit of our county government,” they said.

This comes barely a week after Nyando MP Fred Outa criticized the County Cabinet nominees of being unrealistic and lacking constructive quality for rapid development and political unity.

Governor Jack Ranguma last week unveils his 10 member executive cabinets from Nyando, Muhoroni, Seme, Kisumu Central, Kisumu Town East, Nyakach and Kisumu West constituencies.

He also nominated two special directors to drive the renewable energy and land issues in the county.
