Bun­goma county to tar­mac busy road for Sh1.1bn

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

The Bun­goma gov­ern­ment will tar­mac a road at a cost of Sh1.1 bil­lion to cre­ate a “more con­ducive en­vi­ron­ment for busi­ness”. Gov­er­nor Ken­neth Lusaka (pic­tured) said the 40km Misikhu-Naitiri-Bri­gadier road con­nects Bun­goma to Kakamega and, by ex­ten­sion, Uasin Gishu and Trans Nzoia coun­ties. Within Bun­goma, the road runs through agri­cul­tur­ally rich We­buye East and Kakamega. “The tar­ma­ck­ing of this road opens so many op­por­tu­ni­ties for the sur­round­ing ar­eas. Farm­ers will be able to trans­port their pro­duce to the mar­ket faster,” Lusaka said.
