Bungoma deputy governor Prof.Charles Ngome has asked traditional circumcisers to apply for tenders in the county government to help uplift their lives.

Hosting the traditional circumcisers (Bakhebi) from Kimilili, Webuye East/West and Tongaren at his Eluuya residence Ngome said that for them to change their lives they should not only depend on circumcision which is seasonal.
He used the opportunity to laud the “Balusanya” for observing the set government protocols during the whole exercise. 
“This pandemic has brought many uncertainties but through the help of  administration leadership and personal dedication from locals we have been able to handle our cultural practices with utmost decorum,” said Ngome. 

He said the innovation levels from the songs sang during the ‘Khuminya’ process through to when the candidate gets a successful cut has tremendously shown that modernity can as well marry with traditional way for a healthy society. 
Ngome urged the circumcisers to utilize the chances presented by the county government to better their livelihoods. 
“Apply for seek tenders and apply for bursaries, this is a sure way of securing a future for the coming generations,” said Ngome. 

In attendance was area chief Martin Wasike Opicho who promised to cooperate and work with the county government.
