Stop over-reliance on govt support-Kibaki
Posted on Saturday, September 12, 2009 @ 17:48:15 CDT by kwpnews


OTHAYA (PPS) - President Mwai Kibaki Saturday said the government would continue addressing the development challenges facing the country and urged wananchi to support the endeavours.

The President, however, appealed to Kenyans to avoid over reliance on Government support, saying they also have a role to play in improving their living standards.

President Kibaki noted that while it was not possible for the Government to tackle personalized problems of every mwananchi, it will not waver in its determination to create a conducive environment to boost their livelihoods.

The President said, "The Government cannot do everything for its citizens. Kenyans must identify key development challenges in their locality and make concerted efforts to address them."

He was speaking when he met and held discussions with grassroots leaders from Nyeri South District at Othaya Catholic Hall in Othaya Town in his Othaya constituency.

The forum was intended to assess the progress of various development projects initiated in the area and challenges affecting them.

The President once again assured Kenyans that no part of the country will be left out in the Government's development agenda.

The President observed that various poor roads in Othaya constituency were in the process of being rehabilitated, adding that he was aware that they were behind schedule despite having been designed long ago.

President Kibaki challenged wananchi to monitor closely various development projects being implemented and raise pertinent queries whenever they delayed in completion or were poorly done.

He, at the same time, reaffirmed that individual effort was a critical ingredient in both personal and national development and challenged Kenyans to learn from successful neighbours.

"Learn from your neighbours and be supportive of one another in terms of ideas and supporting local leaders," observed the President.

President Kibaki particularly challenged Othaya residents to monitor closely development achievements in other parts of the country and to rededicate their efforts in creating a good name for the area.

He commended the local leadership for remaining focused on initiating prioritized projects aimed at improving the living standards of the wananchi.

"I want to thank you for diligently serving wananchi and remaining focused on implementing projects that improve their livelihoods and making the country a better place to live," observed the Head of State.

He also urged the grass root leaders and area residents to forge a harmonious working relationship to create a good name for the district and strive to excel among the newly created districts in the country.

The President noted that good reputation for the district would come from outstanding performance in exams, eradication of insecurity and improved living standards for wananchi.

President Kibaki said "Strive to maintain peace and collaborate with various arms of the Government to wipe out criminals who cause trouble and live among you."

The President further called for unconditional inclusion and involvement of women in development undertakings in every corner of the country.

President Kibaki asserted that proper mainstreaming of women in development has been identified as a catalyst for progress in societies all over the world and thus Kenya must not be an exception.

He said " Kenyan women must be given equal opportunities in all spheres of life especially in education and the development process of the country."

The Head of State further told public servants to be accountable and redouble their efforts while serving the public.

He emphasized the need for all government ministries to work closely in resolving various development challenges facing the country.

President Kibaki said that the creation of many districts in the country had taken services closer to wananchi and urged them to work hard in collaboration with the Government to install necessary facilities for effective service delivery.

Later the President addressed a crowd at the venue before being entertained by groups of traditional dancers.

The Head of State commended the dancing troupes for their thrilling performances which he termed a crucial medium of transmitting traditional and cultural knowledge from one generation to another.

President Kibaki was accompanied by various grassroot leaders among them Othaya Constituency Development Fund Chairman Karanja Mwangi, Othaya Development Association Chairman James Mugabi, civic leaders from Othaya Town Council and Nyeri County Council and other stakeholders in development.
