ODM leader Raila Odinga’s backyard seems to be the most region blessed in the country so far. Is it the outcome of the March 9 handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila?
Early this week, Deputy President William Samoei Ruto traversed in the regions launching various projects. The DP who was hosted by Migori governor Okoth Obado launched projects in the counties of Homabay and Migori.
Ruto launched road and health projects in both the counties.
In Homa Bay, the DP donated sh 20 million to a medical facility.
He later turned a church function into a fundraising event in Migori, helping the church to raise a good amount of money.
As if the project launching tour by DP Ruto was not enough, President Kenyatta will visit Homa Bay in early December.
He is expected to present a Sh10 million cheque to Homa Bay Women’s Sacco and inspect Huduma Mashinani projects.
The President is also expected to present a water hyacinth harvesting machine, a patrol boat to beef security on Lake Victoria and life jackets to fishermen.
On Thursday, a team headed by former Nairobi woman representative Rachel Shebesh held a meeting with the Homa Bay security team led by County Commissioner Irungu Macharia.
Shebesh briefed Homa Bay deputy governor Hamilton Orata on the President’s visit.
During his visit, Uhuru will meet fishermen who have complained of persistent harassment by Ugandan security forces on the most prestigious Island of Migingo.
He will also inspect Homa Bay Pier market and fish cooling plant, which was constructed by Homa Bay woman representative Gladys Wanga using the National Government Affirmative Action Fund.
The county will be benefiting from National government launched projects for two consecutive months now, having spearheaded by the second and first in command people in the national government respectively. Is it not among the most blessed County in the country?
