Nyong’o emphasized the need for every project and service to become a legacy for the county, urging the officials to help him leave a legacy as he serves his last term.

Nyong’o called upon the newly inducted officials to take responsibility for meeting and exceeding revenue targets set for their respective departments.

With thinning financial resources due to unmet domestic revenue targets, he urged them to make revenue collection a key performance indicator.

“While political leaders bring in policies and determine service delivery direction, it will be up to you to help us get there,” said Nyong’o.
