The speaker of the National Assembly Hon Moses Wetang’ula together with the Prime Cabinet Secretary, Hon. Musalia Mudavadi, today accompanied President William Ruto at the launch of the upgrading to bitumen standard and performance-based routine maintenance of Malava- Kimang’eti- Ikoli Road Malava Constituency, Kakamega County.

Speaker Wetang’ula says that the road starts at Malava town, at the junction of Kakamega – Webuye road, traversing through Kuvasali market and Kimang’eti market before terminating at Ikoli centre.

The road, being constructed at the cost of Sh542 million, is currently 50.6% complete, covering a stretch of 6.5km.

Upon completion, the road will support the growth of the economy of the agriculture-rich region of Kakamega by enabling ease of access to markets.

The road will also help to access collection centres for agricultural produce including sugarcane, maize, dairy produce and meat, providing access to public institutions and enhance connectivity to existing road networks in the region and beyond.

“I appreciate the people of Malava. We came here to ask for your votes. It is because of your votes and prayers that we now have a new President and you can see what he is doing for development.” Hon Wetang’ula notes.

Further the speaker congratulated the Mps in accompaniment to the function praising them for them for the positive roles they’re playing both Nationally and in rural areas.

“As the Speaker of the National Assembly, I’d also like to register my appreciation of the Honourable Members, they are good and are doing a good job in spurring development through budget-making and oversight.” Wetang’ula writes.

Wetang’ula said that he is focussing on development projects more than anything.

He says that they’re working to increasing lands’ production by the end of five years.

Wetang’ula has persistently call President emeritus Uhuru Kenyatta to give dignity to the office of the Retired President. The same way President Moi did, President Kibaki did and the same President Ruto will do when he retires.

The statement comes immediately after the heated wrangles occurred in the Jubilee party headquarters where the two teams led by Hon. Jeremiah Kioni and Hon Kanini Kega crushed over party rivalry.
