PHOTOS: 1.2 Billion Budalangi bridge collapses just two weeks after Uhuru inspection

By UREPORT | June 26th 2017

The Sh1.2 billion Sigiri Bridge in Budalangi Constituency that Presidnet Uhuru inspected two weeks ago has collapsed.

President Uhuru inspected the construction works while on his tour pitching for his reelection in Western Kenya.

NASA flagbearer Raila Odinga led the opposition to Busia County on Sunday where they campaigned in Budalangi labeling his ODM party's former Secretary General Ababu Namwamba a 'Flag that died in a glass of milk'.

The Sigiri bridge is among projects that the Budalangi MP used to woo voters to support president Uhuru's reelection in August.

Raila in his address said he did not regret the Labour Party leader's exit from ODM party accusing him of turning his back on him after having helped him rise to fame from the moment he made him a minister.
