NCCK CENTRAL REGION

PRESS BRIEF

The NCCK Regional Committee met here at ACK St. James and All Martyrs Cathedral this 23rd day of February 2024. Reflecting on the book of 1 Timothy 6:11, we challenged ourselves to remain responsible ministers. Delegates discussed the state of the region and respective counties and wish to share the following message.

We continue calling on the government to put in strategies that will continue to lower the cost of living for the people of this great country. As we appreciate that God gave us rains and thus improved harvest, we recognize that people are still reeling from difficulties relating to educating their children. Access to subsidized fertilizers and lowering of the costs of inputs must be prioritized.

We call on the national and county governments to address the differences being experienced relating to the division of revenue. Efforts must be put in place to enhance devolution and not to hurt it. Service delivery has been greatly affected in the counties and this adds to the difficulties the people are currently experiencing.

We call on the leaders in our region to minimize the political competition and maneuvers and instead focus on service delivery. It will be a great disservice to the people in this region to be engaged in divisive political wrangles while service delivery is wanted in most of the counties.

Consultation of people must be prioritized in the spirit of public participation regarding various policies for instance taxation and housing agenda. People-centered policies would be the most progressive ones so that people are not overburdened. Government as promised should listen more and speak less.

We call on the government to ensure speedy acceleration of the health reforms to ensure people are not suffering from hefty payments in accessing health by paying out of their pockets.

Signed

Rt. Rev Timothy Gichere
