Uhuru meets Luo Nyanza leaders in Statehouse

President Uhuru Kenyatta held a meeting with luo Nyanza leaders ahead of Madaraka day in Kisumu county. The overwhelming meeting attended saw the leaders discuss the Building Bridges Initiative(BBI) and the fate of the sugar industry. The sugar industry which had been an economic earner for Nyanza and Western regions has been facing extinction due to previous poor management and increased importation of cheap sugar from outside countries such as Uganda.

The president assured the leaders and Kenyans that the BBI report will benefit everyone and not only leaders in government as several people having to tell them. He also told them that the government has plans of reviving the sugar industry to create jobs for Nyanza and Western people.

In addition, he insisted that he and Raila are keen on leaving a rich legacy with ample benefits to the young people such as jobs and availability of basic needs. His sentiments were supported by Seme member of parliament, James Nyikal who urged the leaders to work with President Uhuru to ensure the Building Bridges Initiative report is implemented
