Devolution continues to shape the way public affairs are conducted, how decisions are made, and how public resources are utilized. The citizens now have the constitutional mandate to not only identify their unique and specific problems but also suggest for the best remedies to their development needs and challenges through public participation. Through your participation in these fora, together we shall chart the path of inclusivity and participation by all in governance; women, youth, people living with disability, our senior citizens, the vulnerable and minorities.
The fruits of devolution however cannot be realized without efficient, well trained and motivated public service members with commitment to customer satisfaction, work ethic and good corporate governance
