President William Ruto will on Friday, January 13, 2023, begin a two-day working tour of the Nyanza region, covering Kisumu, Homa Bay, and Siaya counties. The President is expected to launch several projects in the region.
The Head of State will on Friday launch the first phase of the 5,000 affordable housing programme for Homa Bay County. The project will cover several towns - Oyugis, Kendu Bay, and Mbita.
Homa Bay was the first devolved county government to sign the Affordable Housing Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in April 2018. The county has set aside 11.6 acres for the affordable housing project.
The President will also launch and inspect other projects in the region, including commissioning the newly completed Oyugis market and break ground for the Homa Bay fish market (300M).
In addition, the President will preside over the commissioning of the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology (JOOUST) Blue Economy Research Hub.
On Saturday, the Head of State will grace the homecoming ceremony of ICT Cabinet Secretary Eliud Owalo.
