Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen,

It is with great pleasure and honor that I stand before you today as the Speaker of the County Assembly of Kisumu, on this momentous occasion of the strategic plan launch by our esteemed Woman Representative for Kisumu County. I would like to extend a warm welcome to each one of you, as we gather here to witness and support this significant milestone in our county’s progress.

First and foremost, I would like to acknowledge the presence of our distinguished Deputy Governor, Woman Representative Homabay County, the Member of Parliament for Kisumu West and her counterpart of Suba North who is the guest of honour, the Clerk of the County Assembly of Kisumu, the Chief Executive Committee Members for Education, Agriculture, Tourism, Sports; and Public Service, the Majority Leader of the County Assembly, and his deputy alongside the many MCAs in attendance. Your presence here today is a testament to the importance you place on the development and growth of Kisumu County.

Ladies and gentlemen, a strategic plan serves as a compass, guiding us towards a shared vision and providing a roadmap for success. It is a vital tool that enables us to align our efforts, resources, and aspirations towards achieving the goals we have set for our county. Today, we witness the unveiling of a strategic plan that will shape the future of Kisumu County, and we should all take pride in this collaborative effort.

The role of the Woman Representative cannot be understated. Through her dedication, advocacy, and commitment, she has championed the cause of women and youth empowerment, education, healthcare, and social welfare in our county. This strategic plan is a testament to her tireless efforts and the unwavering commitment she has shown towards uplifting the lives of our people.

As members of the County Assembly, we have a crucial role to play in the implementation of this strategic plan. It is our responsibility to ensure that the objectives outlined in this plan are translated into tangible actions that benefit our constituents. Together, we must work hand in hand, transcending political boundaries, to foster an enabling environment that supports the successful execution of the strategic initiatives.

I would like to commend Nyakamami for her commitment to inclusivity by involving key stakeholders in the planning process. The presence of the CEC members, the Majority Leader, and his deputy, as well as the members of the County Assembly, is a clear indication of the collaborative spirit that exists within our county’s leadership.

In conclusion, let us remember that the successful realization of this strategic plan requires unity, dedication, and a shared sense of purpose. As we embark on this transformative journey, let us remain steadfast in our commitment to the people of Kisumu County. Together, we can build a brighter and more prosperous future for all.
