A 14 member task force has been formed by Busia County professionals to help come up with a master plan for the County development.
The Task force formed after the Busia Professionals Association meeting held in Busia town, will be charged with the responsibility of gathering information on critical issues affecting the area residents before submitting its findings by August.
“Their role will be to collect views from residents in the County and submit them within the next three months,” said Norbert Wangalwa, one of the event organizers.
Wangalwa said the committee members will elect leaders among themselves and will be expected to come up with a comprehensive report that will help develop the master plan.
“The results will be used to streamline the County to address issues affecting the area residents in various fields including Security, Agriculture, education and trade,” he added.
In attendance was the association’s chairman Christopher Wanga and the Sports Minister Dr Paul Otuoma who urged the professionals to transform the association into a serious lobby group that will ensure the ideas are implemented.
He cautioned area residents against tribalism, urging them to work together as a community to enhance development since it is a cosmopolitan area, remarks that were echoed by the Assistant Minister for Labour Sospeter Ojaamong.
