Siaya Governor James Orengo is working on a comprehensive strategy that would see Siaya match other counties economically.

Orengo revealed that Siaya has the potential of reviving it’s economy through agricultural production and blue economy.

“Most of the counties whose economies are doing well had support of the state adding that even Kisumu City, growth is derived from Kicomi and its sugar belt.

Siaya never got any state investment from previous regimes that’s why we must start from the scratch and develop initiatives that would catapult its growth.

Orengo said it’s such industries that would be the engine for growth and economic prosperity.

Orengo while addressing Siaya employees attending induction workshop organized by Enterprise, Cooperative and Industrial development department assured Siaya people that they have initiated a process of filling the gap.

“We aim to propel growth by supporting the Small Medium Enterprises, “ said Orengo
Orengo who was flanked by Trade Executive Grace Agola, Water Executive Jacqueline Oduol and Director EACC Vincent Okongo faulted the government for disbursing funds late to counties.

“The state is quick to put blame on Counties on funds absorption yet treasury releases funds late,” said Orengo.

In the end of the financial year, President William Ruto is quick to announce to Kenyans how he has disbursed all the funds to the counties to run developments.

The money for last year came three months to the closure of the financial year so imagine somebody giving you five loaves of bread to consume in a minute, is it possible?.

However, Orengo said that the delay in the remittance of such funds has not derailed payments of staffs salaries and statutory deductions.
