The Bu­sia County Bish­ops Coun­cil on Thurs­day praised Gover­nor Sospeter Ojaa­mong’s ad­min­is­tra­tion. About 50 bish­ops, led by Apos­tle Ed­mond Owire, met the gover­nor at the Agri­cul­tural Train­ing Col­lege.

They said his ad­min­is­tra­tion has im­proved in­fra­struc­ture across the county. The bish­ops also cited ex­pan­sion of the county hos­pi­tal and in­stal­la­tion of street lights.

They praised the county gov­ern­ment for cre­at­ing a “con­ducive” en­vi­ron­ment for busi­ness. The first milling plant in Western has been con­structed and two su­gar pro­cess­ing plants are al­most com­plete.

The bish­ops re­quested the county for land to build a mul­ti­pur­pose hall to gen­er­ate rev­enue for churches.

They re­quested Ojaa­mong to al­low them to use the County So­cial Hall for in­ter-de­nom­i­na­tional meet­ings and of­fice space. The bish­ops also want the county to spon­sor a break­fast meet­ing to pray for the county lead­er­ship.

Ojaa­mong said the cler­ics’ re­quests will be con­sid­ered. He said the prayer break­fast is a pri­or­ity. Ojaa­mong thanked the bish­ops for their con­fi­den­dence in his ad­min­is­tra­tion.

He said the county is work­ing closely with churches. Ojaa­mong said his ad­min­is­tra­tion has im­proved fa­cil­i­ties and sup­plied drugs to the Sal­va­tion Army Kolanya Dis­pen­sary and Nang­ina Mis­sion Hos­pi­tal.

Agri­cul­ture ex­ec­u­tive Moses Osia praised Ojaa­mong for re­spect­ing church lead­ers. He said many county of­fi­cials are God-fear­ing. Pub­lic Works ex­ec­u­tive Bernard Yaite was present.
