Kakamega County Governor Fernandes Barasa has promised to prioritize the tarmacking of the Malaha-Khaunga road arguing that it was key to residents of Mumias East, Navakholo, and Matungu sub-counties.
Speaking during a church service at Bumini Catholic Church in Mumias East Sub County, the Governor said the Sub County will get its share of development from his Government.
The governor had joined the faithful for the thanksgiving mass for the retiring catechist Peter Kongani who has served in the position for 36 years. The mass was presided over by Rev Fr. Alfred Ndalalwa.
He pledged to support Mr. Kongani in his retirement by building a Chaplain’s office that he will take charge of.
“I have the interests of Mumias East at heart. I will ensure the Sub-County gets its rightful share of development projects to transform it,” he said.
He thanked residents of Mumias for supporting his gubernatorial bid saying that were it not for their support he could have not won the seat.
“I thank you for your overwhelming support. I will serve all residents across the County equally under my slogan “maendeleo na usawa kwa wote,” the Governor said.
He called on leaders to support his six-point development agenda which he added will be key to the transformation of the county.
He was accompanied by his political allies Justin Mutobera, Mohammed Omoro among others.
