Thika Diocesan Bishop of the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) The Right Reverend Julius Njuguna Wanyoike has asked both the County Government of Kiambu and the leadership of Thika Town Constituency to integrate local professionals into their governing councils.

Speaking at St. John’s Happy Valley Church on Sunday, Bishop Wanyoike said that this would integrate diversity into all of the processes of the local leadership thus improve on service delivery to the people.

“This region has a very rich human resource manpower that if well utilised be of great help to the region and the country. Why can’t you hire independent professionals for their expertise in specific areas of concern?” posed the bishop.

While revisiting President Uhuru Kenyatta’s ‘Big Four Pillars’ namely food security, affordable housing, manufacturing and affordable healthcare for all, the prelate said that this could only be achieved if all people are put on board.

He challenged residents especially the professionals to always participate in governance through presenting their input in various programmes.

“As professionals, we need to actively participate in all programmes initiated by our leaders. Come out and say precisely what you really want. Your input is very crucial as it helps to bring into perspective, the professional aspect in governance,” he said.

He also challenged the leaders to come up with programmes that would see the development of centres of excellence across Kiambu County that provided leadership, best practices, research, support and training across disciplines on projects that were locally relevant and internationally competitive.

Present during the summon included Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu, Senator Kimani Wamatangi, Speaker of Kiambu Assembly Stephen Ndichu and Thika MP Patrick Wainaina.
