County government embarks on road maintenance at the tune of Sh88 million

Homa Bay county government has embarked on road maintenance program in all eight sub counties at the cost of Sh88 million from the development levy fund.

The fund will be spent on the construction of three culverts, gravelling and maintaining 17 roads
connecting various public institutions across the county.

Speaking Friday at the roads’ department in Homa Bay Town after flagging off the contractor who has been awarded the tenders,  County Secretary Isaiah Ogwe revealed that the work would commence across the county as from 15th April, 2019..

Ogwe who was accompanied by acting roads’ CEC Prof. Richard Muga, the County Assembly chairman for Roads Jeff Ongoro and his deputy Nicholas Owaka further warned the contractors against doing shoddy jobs, stressing that the county would not pay for substandard work.

At the same time, Ogwe said that the county government would take administrative action against county officials found colluding with the contractors for their personal gains before the work is done and completed to the required standard.

On his part, Muga assured the contractor that the county government would pay them once they completed their work.

Meanwhile, the Assembly’s Roads’ Committee chairman Jeff Ongoro said that the committee would accord the executive the necessary support in implementing projects which could transform the locals’ livelihood.
