Huduma Centre mutes expanding in Kisumu West


Huduma Centre Secretariat is considering the suitability of Kisumu West Sub County to host a Huduma Centre to cover areas bordering it in offering government service to Kenyans.

Gatobu Kirera deputy director operations and administration at Huduma Kenya Secretariat said they made the site visit on Friday to check the suitability of the place.

Kirera said the area MP Rosa Buyu approached the Secretariat to establish a centre, which will in turn alleviate the suffering of Kenyans who travel long distances to Kisumu for government services.

“We heeded that call and we have come here to look at the facility and we will advise whether it is suitable to establish the Centre,” he said.

He said a decision will be taken once a report has been made and looked into by the Secretariat.

Speaking to the press when he visited the site alongside other Secretariat officials, Kirera said the report will capture what is there and what is not available.

“If there is work to be done, then it has to be completed first before it is given a green light,” he said.

Kirera noted that the government is ready to offer services to Kenyans whenever they are.

He announced that they have a number of strategies to bring services closer to the people while singling out Huduma Mashinani, where they offer services in camps on temporary basis.

“It does not have to be in a physical building, we will offer services anywhere if need be,” he said.

MP Buyu on her side said it was a campaign pledge to her people that she will facilitate through government officials decentralizing all government services in her constituency.

“This will ease the expense of travelling up to Kisumu Central in search of some of the very fundamental services to our people,” she said.

Buyu is looking forward to a favorable assessment report that will give okay for the establishment of the centre in Kisumu West.

She noted that once operationalized, the centre will receive Kenyans from the neighboring counties and even Maseno University, whose population will make the centre vibrant and active.

“This will be a catchment area and will serve a very huge population who normally seek government services in Kisumu city, Kakamega or Vihiga county headquarters,” she said.
