Isiolo Members of the County Assembly have endorsed the County executive’s pact with a foreign organization to manage health care in the county.
Civil society groups and religious leaders have also expressed their support for the deal between the County Government of Isiolo and Living Goods organization.
Majority Leader Isaac Fayo dismissed a petition presented to the Senate opposing the proposed engagement of Living Goods organization in the management of three sub county hospitals and the subsequent effect of the organization.
Fayo said that the proposed pact was yet to be signed but was before the County Assembly for assessment and subsequent approval.
Isiolo Interfaith secretary Bishop Stephene Kalunyu however said that as religious leaders and civil society groups in the County, they are satisfied that the pact would be helpful to county residents.
He called on the residents of Isiolo to desist from politicizing the proposed pact, and instead seek more information regarding the same and support it.
The civil society organizations representative Rukia Wako said that the Co-financing deal with Living Goods was critical for the County since resources at the County government’s disposal were minimal.
Valentine Nyaguthii, an Isiolo resident and women group leader however noted that members of public needed more clarification regarding the proposed pact.
She said that the deal would go a long way towards improving health care services in the County with the planned involvement of community health workers at the village level
