Construction of the Sh4 billion Lake Victoria Basin Commission (LVBC) headquarters in Kisumu will start after a 10-year delay.

Ali Matano, the LVBC Executive Secretary said 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.

The three member states – 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 spree that left the commission ineffective in meeting its mandates on the Lake Victoria Basin.

"The Council of Ministers recently directed that we create a fund for construction of headquarters which is open to contribution from anybody," he said during the commission's tenth anniversary in Kisumu yesterday, "We will later ask the partner states to chip in."
