The county government has launched its first Rapid Results Initiative (RRI) program in a meeting that was held at the county headquarters earlier this week.
The initiative’s main objective is to fast track service delivery to Kisumu county residents and to implement the governor’s manifesto.
Speaking during the launch, the County Minister for Environment, Water, Irrigation and Natural Resources, Mr. Salmon Orimba said, every directorate has to set up structures that includes, project planning and implementation, monitoring and evaluation, liaison and mobilization, administration and enforcement, in order to realize the RRI.
Mr. Orimba also noted that there is need for proper documentation that will put in place proper revenue collection plan and a list of all the actors in charge of services in all the 47 sub counties in Kisumu, adding that the procurement office should ensure that all payments made should be captured and recorded.
The RRI is structured in four thematic areas which include, Solid Waste Management, Pollution control, enforcement and administration. Each of the thematic areas have a taskforce that presented implementation strategy to ensure realistic projects and activities to be accomplished.
In his remarks, Mr. George Okong’o, the governor’s economic advisor reaffirmed the governors interest in ensuring service delivery to the residents of Kisumu and that projects that are geared towards the same are prioritized.
The RRI initiative is expected to complete all its 47 projects by June this year thus ensuring food security, reduced pollution and clean water for residents within Kisumu county.
