Governor to seek donor funding from US

21 August 2013, 11:16 Dareel Eric

Vihiga governor Moses Akaranga will travel to the United States of America on Thursday to woo potential investors to his county and source for donor funding.

The three-week tour will see him visit a range of States and deliver keynote speech to various investors at Dallas.

“I will also meet our sons and daughters who are staying in the States and have agreed to support the county government to take off at the required speed. Over 300 people who reside there have agreed to meet me,” said the governor.

During a meeting with his cabinet and the heads of departments in the county on Tuesday, which was attended by the Vihiga Women Representative Dorcas Kedogo, the governor emphasised the need for the county to focus on development agenda.

He said that the worrying state in which the county falls needs concerted efforts to pull it to the level that will benefit the people in the long run.

“My trip to the United States is one of the strategies we are using to seek help for the people in this county. We need investors to come around so that they can help our unemployed youths,” he said.

Akaranga will further meet the Board of Michigan University, which has already pledged to support the county with medical apparatus to boost healthcare.

“The Board of Michigan University has pledged to offer the county with various apparatus that will help us to improve on our healthcare around,” he said.

While reiterating the need to focus on development agenda, the governor said that his government will have to work with two different budgets, one to please the central government and the other to woo investors.

“If our budget lacks a deficit, there is no way you can convince investors that we are in need of funding,” he said.
