Uhuru Kenyatta launches Wei Wei integrated programme
President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday toured parts of West Pokot and Turkana counties to launch various development projects.
The President first visited Wei Wei area in Sigor Constituency, West Pokot County, where he launched the third phase of the region’s integrated development project.
The irrigation project is being implemented by the Kerio Valley Development Authority.
With him are Cabinet Secretaries Mwangi Kiunjuri (Devolution and Planning), Joseph Nkaissery (Interior), Eugene Wamalwa (Water) as well as Inspector-General of Police Joseph Boinnet and Rift Valley coordinator Wanyama Musiambo.
The President is also expected to launch the construction of the Eldoret-Kitale-Lokichar-Amosing road that links Kenya and South Sudan at the Kainuk border point in Turkana County.
Turkana County commissioner Stephen Ikua said the key road will boost trade and investment in the two counties that were initially known for banditry and drought.
More to follow.
