Bungoma Governor leaves for Spain to woo investors

10 July 2014, 20:35 Arap Yego

Bungoma - Bungoma Governor, Kenneth Lusaka is leading a delegation of twelve officials from his county  government to a one week tour in Spain to woo potential investors.

The governor left the country on Thursday morning with the team that includes three Members of his County Executive and four Members of the County Assembly (MCAs).

Speaking to journalists before departing, Lusaka said the delegation that he is leading will visit Madrid, Valencia, Catalunya, Navarra and Asturias where they expect to hold talks with the leaders.

“Bungoma County has a lot of untapped potential investment opportunities. I am hopeful that at the end of the trip, we will manage to lure some investors from Spain to come to Bungoma,” he said.

“We have identified Spain as a country that has best practices and potential for development partnerships in various sectors of the economy like Agriculture, Education and Trade. If we clinch any deals in these sectors, the people of Bungoma County will benefit a great deal,” said Lusaka.

He added that the team is also expected to meet the people from Bungoma who live in Europe and other parts of the diaspora for a possible agreement on how they will invest back into their home county.

County Executive Members accompanying the governor are Teresa Nakhungu(Tourism, Forestry, Environment and Natural resources),  Patrick Koyi (Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Cooperatives) and  Laurian  Kolikho Trade, Energy and Industrialization).

Members of the County Assembly (MCA’s) on the trip are Bethwel Mwambu, Rosemary Khisa, Nancy Kibaba and Mary Namaswa.

Others are  the  County Director of Communications Noellah Musundi, Advisors in the office of the governor; Benedict Emachar( Economic Affairs) and Janepher Mbatiany (Women and Gender Affairs)  and the Bungoma County Chairman of the National Chamber of Commerce Mr Herman  Kasili.
