Inside Ruto’s 4-day charm offensive in Raila’s backyard

President William Ruto is gearing up for a comprehensive development tour of the Nyanza region, commencing on October 6, 2023. His primary objective is to secure backing from counties that have historically supported Raila Odinga, the leader of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition.

This forthcoming visit marks President Ruto’s fourth appearance in Homa Bay County since the August 2022 General Election.

The initial visit, occurring shortly after his inauguration, was marred by controversy when certain leaders failed to accompany him to a church service, citing lack of invitation as the cause. In his last visit to Karachuonyo, during the homecoming of Interior Principal Secretary Raymond Omollo, opposition political leaders chose to boycott the event. However, his fifth visit is poised to be a different experience, as leaders, led by Governor Gladys Wanga, have extended a warm welcome to the Head of State.

Here is a detailed itinerary for the President’s visit to the region:

Kisumu:

  • Groundbreaking ceremony of the Sh1 billion Kabonyo Regional Fisheries and Aquaculture Center of Excellence in Nyando.
  • Commission the Lake Basin Mall.
  • Launch the Koru-Bible College Road.
  • Launch the MV Uhuru 2, a ship designated for operations on Lake Victoria.

Siaya:

  • Launch the upgrade of the 27km Bondo-Uyawi-Kibanga-Liunda Road.
  • Launch a digital laboratory at Mutumbu Technical Training Institute.
  • Commission the construction of a Level 4 hospital in Ugenya.

Homa Bay:

  • Initiate the construction of the 53km Mfangano Island Ring Road.
  • Launch the upgrade of the 74km Mbita-Sindo-Kiabuya-Sori Road.
  • Pay a visit to Victory Fish Farms in Sindo.
  • Launch the rehabilitation of the Homa Bay Pier and other piers.

Migori:

  • Launch the Last Mile water connectivity project at Kegonga, Kuria East.
  • Commission a tuition block at Rongo University.
  • Commision Uriri Hospital.
  • Launch the construction of the Mabera affordable Housing project in Kuria West.

 

Reflecting on President Ruto’s prior visit in January, where he initiated the construction of affordable housing, his Deputy, Rigathi Gachagua, called upon Nyanza voters to support their cause in the upcoming election. Dr. Ruto is expected to emphasize this message during his upcoming visit, acknowledging the historical sentiments of regional leaders who have felt marginalized by previous administrations.
