Should anyone complain, tell them to come to my office,” he said. The Kisumu governor noted that projects had delayed because there was no city management board. The board has now been set up. Most projects, he added, had been affected by cases of corruption and impunity. “Proper planning is needed to ensure development projects are realized,” he said. Buildings targeted for demolition are those built a long the river banks and the shores of Lake Victoria. Speaking at the same function, the MCA of Nyalenda B ward, Joseph Olale urged the contractors to employ locals. He also urged the residents not to politicise the project, but instead collaborate with the contractors to boost development. The road, once completed is expected to increase trade by linking Kisumu to Kendu-bay and Kusa. The governor announced plans to construct modern hotels at Dunga Beach that will in turn create employment opportunities for residents. The county government is hoping to tarmac all the roads.
