SCHOLASTICA (MERCEDES) MADOWO
Together We Can Make South East Alego Ward a Center of Excellence in all Sectors of Development through Visionary Leadership.
Greetings. I wish to welcome you warmly to this website which is a platform that I am using to present my campaign messages on my quest to vie for the political office of Member of County Assembly (MCA) for South East Alego ward, Alego-Usonga Constituency in Siaya County.
My vision is to make South East Alego Ward a center of excellence in all areas of development
SOUTH EAST ALEGO WARD PROFILE
South East Alego is one of the six political administrative Wards in Alego-Usonga Constituency. It has 11 sub-locations which are: Barding, Bar Agulu, Bar Olengo, Bar Osimbo, Masumbi, Mur Malanga, Mur Ng’iya, Nyajuok, Nyang’oma, Pap Oriang’ and Randago. It is the largest Ward in the constituency and second-largest country-wide covering an area of 191.5 sq. km. with a total population of approximately 56,453.
ECONOMIC ACTIVITY AND BASIC INFRASTRUCTURE
The main economic activity in South-East Alego is subsistence farming dependent on rainfall. However, in recent years, climate change has resulted in erratic rainfall patterns that have affected food production in the area. The area is also water-scarce with parts of it being semi-arid. The road network is poor with many parts inaccessible during rainy season.
WHY I AM VYING FOR POSITION OF MCA
The position of Member of County Assembly in the devolved government is a strategic seat of influence in spurring development at the County level. I believe that I will be able to influence policy-making and lead the design and implementation of a broad range of development projects throughout the Ward.
