By Amunga Peter
When the president launched key projects in the Nyanza region, western leaders murmured how he had sidelined their region.
We are now informed via Oparanya media guys that, State house team has reached to the Kakamega Governor together and the CS for devolution to identify the projects that the president can launch or commission within the region in his visit next month. Of all the projects targeted belong to specific counties. The projects include:
1) Gold refinery in Ikolomani.
2) Granite factory in vihiga.
3) Water project in vihiga.
4) Open a referral hospital in kakamega among others
Bungoma,Busia and Trans Nzoia are reluctant to identify the projects saying it’s their projects therefore the president can’t hang on them. They said,”let the president bring new projects as he did in Kisumu not hanging on county projects of which most of them are incomplete due to inadequate funding from the government.
The issue of Mumias sugar will be theoretically mentioned to please the public but very little may be done.
Among leaders spearheading the president’s visit is the Kakamega Governor,Cs Eugine wamalwa, National assembly chief whip Emmanuel wangwe, and Trans Nzoia counterpart Patrick khaemba.
It’s not clear if the Ford Kenya leader Wetangula and ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi will attend the meetings called by Kakamega Governor next week to discuss the president’s visit to the region.
Keep it here for details.
