Invitation Letter:Turkana County Visit 9th - 10th February

I wish to take this opportunity to thank you most sincerely for the support you and your fellow editors have accorded this proposed meeting of minds.

On behalf of Turkana County Government and on my own behalf, I would like to extend a warm invitation to the members of the Editor’s Guild to come and visit Turkana as proposed between February 9th and 10th, 2015.

As a Government, Turkana County recognizes the important role that the media plays in development.  In this regard therefore, I would like us to meet to discuss a number of things we consider very important in our development agenda which we strongly feel the media has a role to play. As one of the beneficiary of devolution, Turkana County has reorganized itself and has come up with a development blue print, thus the County Integrated Development Plan that guides every activity in the County.

.

The UN in their change of strategy to deliver as one, has also identified Turkana County as a model to pilot this strategy.

Just to show you how we seriously take the media - My entire Executive, their Chief Officers and all our Sub-County and Ward Administrators  have undergone a compulsory two-day training on media skills. These training programmes have been conducted by senior communication and media personalities drawn from both print and electronic media in Kenya.

This meeting between Turkana County Government and the Editors’ Guild is indeed a first of its kind in many fronts. For us in Turkana, it is a watershed meeting being the very first time we will be having the entire editorial body of the country’s media come to Turkana, see what we have to offer and more importantly, sincerely listen to us.

I do not want to preempt anything at this stage but I want to once again, sincerely thank you and your fellow editors for accepting our invitation. I look forward to welcoming the Guild to Turkana County.
