Kaler Ward Office in Nyatike Sub-County Completed!

The clamor for constitutional reforms that heralded the promulgation of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 was premised on the need to give the people the power of self-government and bring services and opportunities close to the people. Migori County government has inched closer to realizing these ideals with the handing over of the newly constructed Kaler Ward offices to Migori County Public Service and Management Department pending official opening by H.E Zachary Okoth Obado, Migori County Governor.

The offices in Kaler Ward in Nyatike Sub-County will house all the devolved units in the county government and in essence, bring services closer to the people of Kaler. Speaking at the handing over ceremony, Mary Midida, the Chief Officer PSM lauded the contractor for completing the offices within the set contract period.
“The county government is delighted with the contractor for completing this wonderful construction within the stipulated time,” she said.


Mary added that Migori County Government has plans to construct such offices across the county. She also instructed Kaler ward administrator, Mr. Nashon Tingo Nyamatiko to occupy the offices immediately and discharge his mandate to members of the public.
Nashon also expressed his pleasure with the new officers adding that he now has a place to discharge his duties from.

“Now that there is a functional office, I urge all Kaler Ward residents to make use of this office,” said Nashon adding, “I now request all officers heading devolved units to come and occupy these offices so that residents can get all services under one roof.”

The contract period for the construction of the office was 24 weeks. Construction began on 17th December 2015 and ended on 18th May 2016. The offices will house all devolved departments like health, education, youth, sports, culture and social services, environment, natural resources and disaster management, roads, transport, public works and energy, trade tourism and cooperatives, agriculture livestock, fisheries and water development among others.
