How will Dr. Gideon Facilitate Economic Development in Nyamira?

Successful Nyamira county development will take collaboration among stakeholders who are dedicated to working together to define and solve problems within our community and pursuing opportunities. All stake holders must be involved and take part to gain development. Dr Gideon is a devolution guru. Experienced in devolution systems and well connected worldwide. This is what he cherishes and links to help the Nyamira community.

The adoption of devolved system of government in Kenya was a desire of citizens who wanted access to public services closer to them. The objects of devolution as provided for in Articles 174 and 175 of the Constitution about promotion of democracy and accountability in the exercise of power, fostering national unity by recognizing diversity, enhancing people’s self-governance, enabling communities manage their own affairs, protecting and promoting interests and rights of minorities and the marginalized and ensuring equitable sharing of resources. Dr Gideon believes that to achieve these, there must be framework put in place and enabling environment provided to all stakeholders involved in implantation of devolution.

As witnessed, Nyamira leadership has witnessed poor or absence of consultation on matters that affect Nyamira County Government, little technical support for the implementation of functions, lack of capacity and skills to deliver services, corruption, lack public participation, gender inequality and appointment of incompetent leaders. Dr Gideon having serviced in mature devolved cooperation’s, presents as the best candidate to solve these challenges and bring prosperity to Nyamira.

Dr. Nyakundi donating laptops and thermo guns to the Nyamira community (government centers, schools, churches and hospitals).

Dr. Gideon donated also more than 11 million worth of medical equipment to Nyamira hospitals 2020/2021.

Dr. Gideon advocates informed Decision Making through Public Participation

Decisions made at county level should focus more on the local needs. This is enhanced by the ability of county members to engage into meaningful discussions regarding running and management of the affairs of the county. County management through public participation as provided for in the constitution should provide for opportunities for focused and prioritized community concerns to be addressed.

The County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP 2018) provides information on development priorities that informs the annual budget process based on the Public Finance Management Act which states that no public funds shall be appropriated outside a county’s planning framework. The CIDP (2018) report further revealed that the county planning unit has the mandate to include, both in the draft and approved CIDP, relevant information to promote civic education and deliberations by the public and other stakeholders. According to Dr Gideon, CIDP budget should mirror reported expenditure to curb corruption. The community should be informed on the outcomes and the progress of the process and discussions thus improving development. Lack of accountability and vision has stagnated development in Nyamira. Dr Gideon believes that through citizen empowerment, The Nyamira communities can engage in negotiations with leaders in the county and get involved in decision making responsibilities. The community must be fully involved in decision making process. It is important to promote transparency, accountability and democracy to enable people at the grassroots get to choose their leaders and directly participate in decision-making processes making room for accountability and democracy.

Community Development

Dr. Gideon believe that county community development is important because it provides the foundation for a county to build off from to improve the lives of its inhabitants. It creates strong, diverse communities that can attract and keep talent, start and grow businesses, and overcome issues that arise. Nyamirans will be happier, healthier, richer, and live longer lives with Dr. Gideon’s development agenda based on Global development and vision. Businesses will have a larger base of customers who can purchase their products and services, and the county will earn tax to continue to support important programs and reduce debt.

The aspirant considers that when community development is effective, there is less crime, less disparity between clans, better jobs available, a more talented workforce, and less overall issues that impact residents of Nyamira. Equally, community development does not necessarily solve problems in a county, it reduces problems and increases opportunities for growth. Without community development, both economic and business development suffer greatly.

Dr. Gideon is an extraordinarily strong supporter of Free Basic healthcare to all Nyamirans.

A belief he advocates to ensure that it is achieved within one year of his leadership in Nyamira County.

Healthcare

Health is wealth. The health of a community is dependent not only upon the genetics of its residents, but also upon the environment within which those individuals live. A person’s health is a product of their environment. As such, a healthy community is one in which all residents have access to a quality education, safe and healthy homes, adequate employment, transportation, physical activity, and nutrition, in addition to quality health care. Unhealthy communities lead to chronic disease, such as cancers, diabetes, and heart disease.

The health of our communities is critical to the growth and development of our region. To build a healthy community in Nyamira, we must develop multi-sectoral collaborations between community members and stakeholders to ensure the sustainability and adequacy of resources to support comprehensive reform.

Industrialization and Jobs

With over 70 percent population being under the age of 35 years old, the nation and county is growing younger. However, the unemployment rate stands at almost 90 percent, which if extremely worrying. Urgent measures need to be taken to avoid a catastrophe. Dr Gideon believe that to solve the unemployment crisis and increase revenue, we must industrialize our agricultural production. This approach will lower consumer costs, bring technological development and innovation, foster employment opportunities by modern agricultural production and processing systems, and lengthen food availability (for example storage of processed milk).

Further, as observed, the industrialization of agriculture has not just ensured food security in the developed nations, rather it has also contributed greatly to develop better transportation, processing, and storing methods to enable longer shelf life of the produce and assure delivery of the food produce to every corner of the world. This has also greatly reduced food waste. Nyamira should be a model.

Prosperous Nyamira County

Dr Gideon will partner with all clans of Nyamira, all age sets, all denominations, women and men irrespective of their background and affiliations to ensure that Nyamira gets out of chains of bad leadership to prosperity. A leader eager to unit all Nyamirans. Please help Dr Gideon to achieve these dreams and the dreams of all Nyamirans. May God bless you.
