Buildings in Migori town to be repainted

Owners of buildings in Migori town have 30 days to paint their premises.
In a notice posted by the County Government through the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Physical Planning, property owners have been directed to ensure all their buildings were repainted within the specified period.
“As part of the beautification process going on in our towns and municipalities, and subject to the provisions of Public Health Act Cap 242 and Physical Planning Act Cap 286…,” read part of the notice signed by the CECM Elijah Odhiambo.
This is in line with the on-going beautification process of Migori town spearheaded by Governor Okoth Obado.
County Government has also directed the property owners to effect necessary renovations to their buildings.
The notice said old and unsafe buildings should also undergo major renovations as part of the fulfillment of the directive. Those running businesses on corridors, verandas and road reserves were directed to remove them.
The county cautioned those who would not comply with the directive that “County Government officers will enter into your properties without any further reference”.
The County government has also launched beautification plans for Awendo, Rongo and Construction of Ombo market within Migori town in a World Bank project valued at Sh516 million.
The World Bank project has however elicited a war of words between a section of Kuria and Luo community leaders.
Kuria East MP Maisori Marwa has criticized the project saying Kehancha should also have been among the beneficiary towns.
