We are im­prov­ing roads to has­ten growth — Ong­wae

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

Kisii Gov­er­nor James Ong­wae yes­ter­day said his ad­min­is­tra­tion is im­prov­ing road in­fra­struc­ture to speed up de­vel­op­ment. He said 230 kilo­me­tres of new roads are be­ing mur­ramed. Ong­wae said they tar­get 400km by year-end. He, how­ever, ex­pressed con­cern they might not meet the tar­get due to en­croach­ment on road re­serves. “When­ever engi­neers move to re­lo­cate ser­vices on road re­serves, dis­putes arise. This, cou­pled with heavy rains, slows down con­struc­tion. Let’s co­op­er­ate so we open up roads for im­proved ser­vices,” Ong­wae said. He spoke in Gusii Sta­dium.
