Basin offices construction resumes after decade lull
By James Wanzala | November 24th 2016
Construction of the Sh4 billion Lake Victoria Basin Commission (LVBC) headquarters in Kisumu is set to resume after a 10-year delay. According to Ali Matano, the LVBC executive secretary, the Secretariat is sourcing for funds to put up the regional offices and had established a kitty for line ministries to mobilise funds from various foundations. Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania are expected to share the costs, with amendments planned on the commission’s founding frameworks planned to rope in Rwanda and Burundi.
This comes after nearly a decade of failed resource mobilisation that left the commission ineffective in meeting its mandates on the Lake Victoria Basin.
