Development Agenda:  

Water

The Bogusero ward residents have continued to experience perennial water shortages due to poor lack of water storage facilities and know how on how to harvest rain water since the region receives above average rains annually. The water access points are also easily contaminated as they are used for both livestock and humans consumption. If elected, she intends to lobby the county assembly to set aside funds to conduct an awareness campaign on water storage, preservation and treatment while also advocating for the protection of available natural water sources. She will also work closely with the Ministry of Water to initiate programs that provide water storage such as underground tanks.

Empowerment

Majority of the residents of Bogusero ward are unemployed thus they are unable to fend for themselves or their families a situation that has contributed to high poverty levels in the area. Forntina intends to create job opportunities for the locals through encouraging investors to put up companies in the region while at the same time sourcing for jobs from within and outside the ward for the locals. She also intends to help train them on how to save through table banking and working with groups.

Agriculture

Residents of Bogusero ward are large scale farmers but they are exploited by middle men especially during the harvesting season when crops are in abundance who come in to purchase the farm produce at low prices. This happens because many farmers are poor and do not have access to good markets for their produce. Forntina intends to introduce the aspect of food banking in the region where she will work with the county assembly to set up ward silos where farmers the government will buy maize and other farm produce from the farmers at good prizes especially during harvesting season, store and preserve it and sell it back to the residents at affordable prices when the supply goes down. She also purposes to work with county Agriculture Extension Officers to encourage farmers to practice irrigation and plant alternative crops other than maize and beans.
