Uasin Gishu County on Friday hosted a delegation from Muranga County keen on fostering partnerships and exchange of ideas in the Agriculture and Information Technology sectors.
The team led by Muranga Deputy Governor Hon. Stephen Munania was received by his Uasin Gishu Counterpart Eng. John Barorot lauded the team for choosing the County of champions as one of the regions to engage.
This is a good initiative because they are not only here for benchmarking but also keen on exchanging ideas on how we have conducted ourselves in various sectors and also learning from them a good example will be avocado farming which is being embraced in our region,” he said.
The DG observed that their quest for more information on the experiences in ICT is a welcome move as it is anchored in the plans by both counties and national governments to enhance their digital transformation.
“ICT is one of the key deliverables by the two levels of government and we have made strides in our information systems, a move that our partners will be willing to engage and implement in their counties,” he added.
DG Honourable Munania said that their focus is on tapping into knowledge for the best systems that are operational.
Our citizens want service delivery and this can be best achieved by having the best technology and the administrative skills to execute. We have benchmarked in Vihiga, Kisumu and now on our final trail at Uasin Gishu,” he added.
Munania was categorical that in the collaborative plans, Muranga County shall be willing to offer more than 200,000 seedlings of avocado to the county as well as provide capacity building on best farming practices of the crop.
“Even as we look forward to learning more on the mechanization of agriculture and development of ICT, there is a need for us to create synergies that enrich both our counties for the benefit of our citizens who look up to us for service delivery,” he added.
