President Uhuru Kenyatta is making a state visit to Kisumu. The ODM party leader, who is the Luo Kingpin in the entire Nyanza area, greeted President Uhuru warmly. In Siaya County, President Uhuru Kenyatta has started a number of projects, including water and even highways. After President Uhuru Kenyatta promised them sweets, the region will benefit immensely.

The two leaders joined forces to attain their forefathers' objectives. Their predecessors wished to establish a stable country. They tried a few different enterprises, but none of them worked out.

More projects are expected to be commissioned by the head of state as we wait for tomorrow's event. In 2018, the two presidents exchanged a handshake.

The president commissioned Kenya Shipyards Limited in Kisumu County on Monday evening. The yard's goal is to assist the country's shipping industry in expanding and prospering. President Evariste Ndayishimiye of Burundi accompanied him. Because he will be in Kenya for two days, the president will be a special visitor at Kisumu Stadium on Madaraka Day.

The Kisumu Shipyard is planned to play a critical role in the transformation of Kisumu Port into a contemporary regional lake transportation hub. The yard at Kisumu is KSL's second largest, with the largest being in Mombasa.

"My brother, the president of Burundi, and I have laid the keel of a marine investment, the Uhuru II, the first ship built at Kisumu port in nearly 70 years," the president said.

According to the president, the shipyard has resulted in a flow of around 50 million gallons of fuel between Kisumu and Uganda, which has reduced Uganda's petroleum costs.
