Migori governor aspirant Anne Omodho Anyanga has pledged to ‘tithe’ county government revenue to help boost church operations when elected governor.
She was speaking at Pefa Cathedral Church last Sunday when she presided over a funds drive to raise Sh1.4miilion for construction of the church.
Anyanga also said she will expand Migori town which is only served by one busy bridge over river Migori to ease movement of people and spur development.
The politician also added that she will ensure job allocation and tender processing are done on the basis of all 40 wards in Migori as the main way to let all residents feel the benefit of devolution.
“All wealth created by the county government apart from national government should be tithed at ten percent to help boost church development activities,” she said.
Anyanga insisted that churches are running education programmes and activities to help orphans, widows and youths even though they are locked out in CDF kitty.
“Churches are leading members of development in the country and shaped the country future through missionary investments which still stand to date. Churches should be able to generate income and wealth and the best way is to get assistance especially from county governments as they are locked out in other avenues,” she said.
She said she will campaign in the forthcoming elections on a platform of “Christ to bring morality in running county affairs that places the right of people ahead.”
According to Anyanga the money will be offered through a revolving table banking method specially targeting churches.
