||Mr. Speaker, on the 4th August 2010, Kenyans overwhelmingly voted for a new constitution which was promulgated on 27th August 2010. The People of Machakos were not left behind. Our people voted for the new constitution because it brought with it a promise of a new regime. It is now time for change. The most significant element of the new constitution is devolution, which was ushered in by the general elections of March 4th this year. It is against this background that our people want to take charge of development in order to ensure employment creation for youth is realized and the quick and efficient delivery of services at all levels. In delivering this budget, Honorable Members of this county assembly, we are alive to the fact that the expectations of our people are still very high. The Government of Machakos is fully committed and focused to fulfilling those expectations.
