Governor Wycliffe Wangamati will tomorrow, Tuesday, September 28, 2021, host the British High Commissioner H.E. Jane Marriot and her delegation for the launch of the Sustainable Urban Economic Development Programme (SUED) which will see Bungoma Municipality receive KSH 1Billion for infrastructural developlment.
Included in the package will be technical advice on urban planning, training on urban management, investment promotion and value chain projects.
Governor Wangamati's quest to speed up the growth of the County has given the county leverage to claim a share of the £70 million fund from the Department for International Development ( DFID) that is meant to support the 12 fastest growing municipalities in the country.
The Ambassador will visit a number of sites earmarked for the upgrade.
The funds will be used among other things to decongest the CBD by upgrading the bus park and the main market. Other parts of the municipality namely Musikoma, Kabula, Tuuti-Marakaru, Bukembe West, Sang'alo west, South Bukusu, West Bukusu, Khalaba and Township Wards will benefit greatly from the grant.
