President William Ruto is still dangling a carrot in Raila Odinga's home region after the most recent investment in fish research there.
The government allegedly provided a Ksh2.5 billion funding to the Kabonyo Kanyagwal fisheries and aquaculture research facility in Kisumu, according to Salim Mvurya, the cabinet secretary for mining and the blue economy.
The CS said on Monday, November 28 that the funds would be distributed in two parts, totaling Ksh1 billion and Ksh1.5 billion each.
Mvurya disclosed that the research center's first phase, which is anticipated to produce 7 million fingerlings annually, has already received preliminary approval from the cabinet.
With the anticipated annual output levels, the government hopes to increase food and nutritional security across the country.
According to the CS, President William Ruto will formally dedicate the fish center in February of next year.
During the week-long blue economy conference, which drew attendees from all over the world, Mvurya was giving a speech in Kisumu.
