Governor Joseph Ole Lenku kicked off the Human Resource Management Audit Exercise for all County staff today. Human resource audit (HRA) is responsible for identifying human resource problems that affect the human resource functions of an organization and improve organizational performance.
The launched exercise will help in verifying and evaluating the number of staff employed by the County Government, aligning their skill sets with the work requirements, and ultimately improving the overall service delivery to the people of Kajiado. Governor Lenku who led by example submitted all required documentation and became the first county employee to take part in the exercise.
The exercise is being conducted by the Institute of Human Resources Management (IHRM) through its consulting outfit the Human Resource Management Consultancy and Enterprise Services (HUREMCES). IHRM is a Statutory Professional Body established under the Human Resource Management Professionals (HRMP) Act No. 52 of 2012. The team of Sixty (60) adjunct Consultants is led by Catherine Mwangi, Wyclife Nyakina as lead Consultant and Mr. Amos Omollo the Chief Rapporteur.
Unplanned towns in Kajiado will soon be a thing of the past, in the wake of our new Spatial Plan by the County Government. The preparation of a County Spatial Plan is a requirement under the County Government Act, 2012 which requires that all County Governments in Kenya prepare and implement Geographic Information System (GIS) – based County Spatial Plans.
Today, I verified and signed the Plan which has been approved by the County Assembly. The 10-year Spatial Plan has been prepared as per Section 110 of the County Government’s Act (2012), Planning Standards and guidelines as provided for in the National Land Commission’s Exemplar Format.
The Spatial Plan offers a broad vision for sustainable development within the county.
Major natural resources have also been outlined for proper utilisation to benefit the county’s residents and help in growth of the County Government’s annual revenue returns.
I signed the Plan in the presence of Representatives of the County Assembly led by Deputy Clerk, Kipambi Ntele, Chief Whip Hon. Stephen Ngatho, the sectoral Chairman, Hon. Jonathan Koroine and senior officers of the Department of Lands.
It is with great honor and pleasure that I share in this special space and time a reflection of the achievements we have jointly realized since assuming office August 2017. Over the past 4 and half years, my Government has embarked on a major delivery effort, which has involved aligning the Government agenda from political promises to action.
My administration scorecard is premised the functioning infrastructure – road networks, bridges, provision of clean, safe and sufficient water, construction of modern markets, construction of new dispensaries and installation of ultramodern multimillion hospital equipment in our referral hospitals, strengthening of extension services to farmers and other basic systems. In addition, my administration has identified and tackled some of the barriers to school attendance by enhancing funding to Early Childhood Development through infrastructure development and remuneration of ECDE teachers that form the foundation for education. The Expanded secondary school, University & tertiary college’s bursaries for the needy families as well us scholarships scheme was designed to invest in learners from the poor homes as one of the strategies of poverty eradication in the county.
As you will find in the scorecard, it is my hope that you the reader will be able to form a well- grounded opinion on the progress that we have made so far. My Government believes that even a good thing can be made better and hence we will collectively redouble our efforts towards this end. Once again, many thanks.
God Bless Kajiado County, God Bless Kenya
