BENCHMARKING VISIT BY BARINGO COUNTY ASSEMBLY ON MCA’S CAR LOAN REIMBURSEMENT AND ADMINISTRATION OF WARD STAFF AND WARD OFFICE OPERATIONS
The Senate Liaison Office hosted a delegation from the County Assembly Service Board of Baringo. The delegation was led by County Assembly Speaker Hon. Vincent Kemboi accompanied by Majority Leader Hon. Lawi Tallam, Hon. Julius Ng’otie, Hon. Wesley Lekakimon, Commissioner Nelly Amdany and technical staff.
The main objective of the benchmarking visit was to enhance knowledge, of how to effectively manage ward office operations and to understand the dynamics of managing partisan and nonpartisan staff.
The delegation was taken through a detailed presentation by officers from the Directorate of Finance and Accounting and the Senate Speaker’s Office. During the meeting, members were appraised on the history leading to Car-Loan Committee formation, its membership, mandate, operations and structure. The sessions had very interactive engagements where the members were very keen on the operations of the car grant and how it is executed at the national level. The delegation also got an insight into ward office operations and the dynamics of managing partisan and nod partisan staff.
One of the ways the Senate executes its mandate is by offering capacity building support to County Assemblies. Through the Senate Liaison Office, this is achieved through facilitating benchmarking visits, study tours, attachment programs, knowledge exchange sessions. The Senate appreciates the cordial engagements with county assemblies and remains committed to being of service when called upon.
