On Friday, September 9, President William Ruto unveiled five multibillion-dollar projects in Western Kenya. Ruto began operating commercial flights out of Kakamega Airport, where aircraft will now land without first stopping at Kisumu International Airport. The national and local governments worked together to renovate Kakamega Airport.
Around eight years ago, the Kakamega Airstrip's poor condition caused a military helicopter carrying William Ruto, then the vice president, to land at Kisumu International Airport. Just before Ruto boarded an Air Force helicopter, the situation was reported to airport authorities at Wilson, causing the pilot to fly to Kisumu. Decided to modernize it as a result.
In addition, the president praised the construction of Kakamega Teaching and Referral Hospital by former governor Wycliffe Oparanya and pledged to completely stock it. Additionally, Ruto has given the go-ahead for the hostels at Masinde Muliro University to be built. Additionally, he gave orders to the interior and land ministries to make sure that the seized property near the institution is recovered and returned to its rightful owner.
He also requested that the ministry of education help with MMUST's flyover footbridge development.
On the other hand, he clarified that they will all keep the commitments they made throughout the campaigns.
