Development Agenda:  

Health

Homa Bay Central ward is home to several private hospitals a majority of which are expensive hence majority of the residents cannot afford treatment in the facilities. The public facilities in the area lack drugs, equipment and enough medical personnel thus residents are denied proper medical care. Esther intends to lobby the county government to renovate and equip all the public health facilities across the ward to cater for the resident’s medical needs and help decongest Homabay District Hospital.

Infrastructure

Feeder roads within the ward which is in an urban set up are in deplorable conditions and some become impassable during rainy seasons since they are not tarmacked and have potholes all over. Esther purposes to lobby the county government to ensure that the roads are well maintained and tarmacked.

Water and Sanitation

Its ironical that Homa Bay Central ward is home to Lake Victoria but residents suffer water deficiency. The area also suffers from poor drainage and sewerage systems. Esther intends to lobby the county government through legislations that will ensure that the resident have access to clean piped water in their homesteads. She also aims to ensure that the county government puts up public toilets in the area to improve on sanitation.
