Banker gets CCC nomination, vows to improve service delivery

By Staff Reporter

A banker has been nominated for the local authority position in Redcliff in the recently held Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) candidate selection nomination process. 

Blessing Mutero who has been in the banking sector for over a decade, before venturing  into private business has been nominated by various stakeholders in Redcliff to represent Ward 9 in the coming general elections slated for mid this year.

The main opposition is currently vetting the nominees after the party said it received overwhelming responses from across the country. 

“I am really overwhelmed with the nomination which I received to represent my ward. It shows people have faith and confidence in me. The party is currently undergoing the vetting process of the candidates,” he said.

Mutero said his life has been of service to people. 

“I have qualifications in finance and investments. And through my years as a banker I can say my life has been of service to the people. I am currently running my private businesses, if I am to be successful I will be glad to assist in the development of my ward, and represent my ward which will be an honour,” he said. 

He said his work in the corporate world especially the banking sector, enabled him to see some opportunities which he can use to develop his ward if he is to be finally elected councillor. 

“I believe my experience in the corporate world will assist me in helping bringing investment opportunities to my ward,” he said. 

Mutero before showing interest in politics has been engaged in philanthropic activities which saw him assisting the less privileged not only in his ward but also in the greater Redcliff community and is currently paying school fees for disadvantaged children in Redcliff.

He currently sits on the Board of Mary Ward Children’s Home, and is involved with Good Samaritan Charity based in Redcliff.

“Through the generosity of the human spirit we can create hope. It takes each and every one of us, to play our part in developing our places and making a difference,” he said.
