Political Genius: See Five Multimillion Projects Ruto Unveiled In Western Kenya Popularising Him

Five multibillion-dollar projects in Western Kenya were unveiled by President William Ruto on September 9. Kakamega Airport, which formerly required planes to make a stop at Kisumu International Airport, is now accepting commercial flights thanks to Ruto. The national and local governments worked together to restore Kakamega Airport.

As vice president, William Ruto had to land at Kisumu International Airport instead of the more convenient Kakamega Airstrip about eight years ago due to the runway's poor condition. It was reported to the staff at Wilson Airport just before Ruto boarded the Air Force chopper, and the pilot was compelled to head to Kisumu because of the situation. hence resolved to update it to reflect current standards.

The president also committed to completely stock the recently opened Kakamega Teaching and Referral Hospital, which he praised for being a testament to the efforts of former governor Wycliffe Oparanya. Ruto is also responsible for the construction of the dormitories at Masinde Muliro University. As part of his plan, he instructed the interior and land ministries to return the land around the university to its rightful owner.

Additionally, he requested that the MMUST flyover footbridge be built with the assistance of the Ministry of Education.

He argued, however, that all of their campaign pledges would be fulfilled.
