Ground Breaking for The Kisumu Ultra-Modern Assembly

The ground breaking for the Kisumu Ultra-Modern Assembly today marked a major milestone in the quest to provide adequate working space and a more conducive working environment for Members of the County Assembly and Staff. Kisumu Deputy Governor Dr. Mathew Owili, on behalf of the Governor Prof. Anyang’ Nyong’o presided over the ground breaking of the Ksh436 million facility. The Commission on Revenue Allocation (CRA) had issued guidelines capping the total cost of construction of County Assemblies in the country to Ksh.500 million. Apart from the Chambers and offices, the building will also comprise a cafeteria, gymnasium, Members’ lounge and a playing ground for indoor games. The ultra modern Assembly will be located in Milimani, adjacent to Tom Mboya Labour College – the construction expected to be complete by December 2024. The Deputy Governor hailed the Assembly leadership led by Speaker Hon. Elisha Oraro and Clerk Mr. Owen Ojuok for the milestone. Hon. Oraro said the facility is expected to be complete by 2024 and urged the contractors to work tirelessly to ensure they deliver within the timeline.
