KISII COUNTY’S TOP LEADERSHIP SIGN PERFORMANCE CONTRACTS

Kisii County Governor James Ongwae officiated over the signing of performance contracts between him and his Executive Members.


The ceremony was witnessed by Deputy Governor Joash Maangi and Members of Parliament Richard Onyonka (Kitutu Chache South) and Richard Tongi (Nyaribari Chache).

Governor Ongwae said the signing is a strategy to entrench delivery of quality and timely services to residents, improve productivity and institutionalize an accountability framework in the County Public Service.

“It is a management tool that allows for setting objective and time bound performance indicators against which an individual officer’s performance and that of the County Government is evaluated,” he said.

He stressed that the signing will increase service delivery in Kisii County for the benefit of electorates and called on all county staffs to be accountable in their work and warned County officials against poor service delivery saying all officers are mandated to meet their targets.

“I know there are misconceptions about this exercise and for this reason it is important to state what it is and what it is not. I would like to assure every one of you that this exercise is not meant to witch hunt. It is meant to remind us all from the Governor, Deputy Governor, members of the County Executive Committee, Chief Officers, Directors and all staff that we are servants of the Kisii residents. As such, we must be accountable to them at all times,” said Ongwae.

The Governor noted that he and his deputy were elected into office on the basis of the pledges contained in their campaign manifesto and challenged public officers serving in the County Government to be accountable, productive, transparent and focused in order to help fulfill the pledges.

Ongwae announced that the process will be cascaded down throughout the County Government system with CEC’s signing similar agreements with their Chief Officers who in turn will sign agreements with directors all the way to the lowest level.

“The exercise is a reminder of our commitment to service delivery for the common good of Kisii County residents. Our objective is to ensure enhanced performance, transparency and accountability in governance, he said.
