Kiala is known to have been at the forefront of educating residents about devolution through his program dubbed Ugatuzi Na Kiala.

He noted that many people have not yet learned what devolution is and it’s high time civic education was done to people so they have a know-how of what it means.

The Chief Officer went ahead to reveal that through his position services are meant to reach the local mwananchi. He disclosed that boroughs comprised 3 subcounties just like a municipality and this would enable the county government to decentralize all services.

“Governor Sakaja is bent on ensuring that all services are not centralized but decentralized so that the local mwananchi can feel what devolution is,” Kiala reiterated.
