He said that some people have huge chunks of lands that are lying idle yet they are hesitant to release them for development projects that arise in their areas.
Midiwo said it was time the society change their attitude towards land and be ready to sell them at a reasonable price instead of holding on them without any productivity in expense of development that intends to develop communities..
People have begun shy-locking land to the county government and that is a negative thing to development.You cannot have development if land is to expensive, Jakoyo Midiwo
Speaking during an assessment meeting at Rera Health Center in South Gem Location geared toward the establishment of Gem KMTC (Kenya Medical Training Colleges), Hon. Jakoyo asked residents around the facility to avail land so that the intended KMTC can be approved.
He at the same time reiterated that there are a number of county projects that have not been implemented due to lack of land, therefore asked the County assembly to come up with a legislation that will compel those with huge chunks of land to release them for development .
County Assemblies should come up with laws that safeguard land and permit government to reposes land and compensate in equal measure to allow for the development of public beneficial projects, said Jakoyo Midiwo.
Kenya Medical Training College Administration Manager Mr. David Ondeng’ who lead the KMTC officials to the proposed site, pointed on the need for the county governments and the local communities’ to give infrastructural development support to the various KMTCs around their area.
He explained that even though KMTCs are under the national government, the county governments and the community can cheap in since the funds by the national government are not always adequate for their development.
Kenya Medical Training College is the mandate of the government and many times the government is meant to provide the training institutions. However due to minimum resources the training college stagnates hence the need to include the county government and the locals in establishing the physical structure, said David Ondeng’
Siaya County Women Representative Dr. Christine Ombaka also present said once the institution is established, locals will have a benefit from it hence said it was time people change their attitude towards development.
