Nairobi - In an offensive on opposition grounds, DP William Ruto has taken goodies to the backyard of his nemesis, Isaac Ruto.
Ruto said the Tegecha-Koiwa-Changoi road that links Bomet and Kericho counties would be tarmacked at a cost of KES 2 billion.
The construction will start next month.
The DP told residents that other roads would also be improved to enable farmers access markets.
" The Jubilee government will improve roads everywhere, irrespective of the region’s political affiliation,” he said.
This was in reference to Governor Issac Ruto who has formed his own party named the Mashinani Party (CCM).
the same time, the deputy president said the government would use KES 1.2
billion to connect homes in Bomet County to electricity.
said that when the Jubilee administration came to power four years ago,
only 11,000 people in Bomet had access to power but the figure had gone
up to 29,000.
Ruto said only 35 of the more than 670 schools lacked electricity.
the same time, Mr Ruto said the government would spend KES 400 million to
build four technical training institutes in Sotik, Chepalungu, Bomet
Central and Konoin constituencies. He said building every institution would cost KES 100 million. The DP added that the government had released medical equipment valued at KES 805 million to Longisa and Ndanai hospitals. The equipment includes cancer diagnosis and treatment machines.
