Lusaka launches Sh33m security lighting project

Bungoma Governor, Ken Lusaka, has launched a Sh33.8million security lighting project, to light up Bungoma town and its environs so as to address the rising insecurity incidents.

Speaking at Bungoma Airstrip during the launch, Lusaka said that the project is the very first of many more lined up for other major towns across the County.

He said that the next one will be launched at Chebukube in Mt Elgon Sub-county.

Mr. Lusaka lauded members of the County Assembly for passing the Supplementary Budget and allocating money towards the repair and installation of new security lights in County markets.

“These are projects initiated when I served as first Governor, but were neglected when I left, so I intend to make them even better,” Lusaka said.

He said 1,200 security lights, 60 batteries, 20 solar panels and 20 charger controllers installed in towns earlier had been vandalized.

Lusaka warned that those who will be found vandalising security lights, will face the law.

“I am not going to entertain nonsense over these security lights being launched today, if you are found interfering, don’t blame me,” Lusaka warned.

Lusaka also launched the rehabilitation of Lusaka road and announced the launch of rehabilitation of roads in Mt Elgon this week.

He said that the road network will help farmers in the region transport their farm produce to Chwele and other markets.
