Amason Kingi urged to improve infrastructure

21 March 2013, 18:25 Alloys Musyoka

Tourism stakeholders in the North Coast region want the first historical governor elect Amason Jefa Kingi to first address issues of poor infrastructure in Kilifi county which is a barrier to development.

Kenya Hotel keepers and Caterers Association Chairman in the North Coast region Philip Chai said the road network in the area is not that pleasing considering the area is a tourism attraction center.

Chai said the area has poor road network which hinders smooth movement of tourists from one place to another as well as cleaning of the area.

He said the governor elect should first make sure that the tourism hub is clean for the sake of attracting more visitors.

"The issue of Airport which has for long brought issues in this region should also be considered as well as cleanliness because we want more tourists to come here for the sake of improving our economy," he noted.

Chai said improving road network, cleaning the tourist hub and Airport are among the key issues that will spark development in the resort area.

He said as hoteliers have prepared a document which will be handed to Kingi on the issues.

On his side, governor elect Amason Kingi said his county government will be focusing on how to solve land issues, poor education, economic problems of the locals and all other challenges facing the local residents.

"We have the government with us here. It's now us to make things happen. I will not sit and watch as my people suffer; every issue will be addressed," he said.
