Governor Nyong'o has today announced that the Kisumu County will begin mass production of electric motorcycles in a bid to curb air pollution in the city.
The City governor has stated that Kisumu will produce the electric motorcycles at the business innovation and incubation centre because the motorcycles will be cheap, easy to maintain and environmental friendly.
Governor Nyong'o has said these after he received 15 electric motorcycles on behalf of Kisumu County today from the United Nation Agency - UNEP.
