Dp Ruto back to the coast after a long break
Deputy President William Ruto is back at the Coast after a long break before touring the region. His visit comes only three days after President Kenyatta had a four days tour to the same region. The DP starts his five-day tour Thursday, and is set to launch a number of development projects.
Mr. Ruto’s first stop is expected to be at the Tana River where he is expected to inspect a number of projects such as the KoraKora canal water and then proceed to Kilifi where he will commission the Baricho Water stabilization supply and visit the National Irrigation Board project on cashew nuts and coconut, which will see farmers benefit in their seedlings. On Saturday, the DP will be heading to Kwale for the launch of the Sh500 million dam project in Pemba. The dam was reconstructed after it was washed away by flood
On Sunday, he will be in Mombasa to launch the Sh300 million sewerage works funded by the African Development Bank in Changamwe. He will conclude crisscrossing the region on Monday by visiting Taita Taveta. On Wednesday, DP Ruto’s Communication Secretary David Mugonyi has confirmed his boss tours to the coastal region
Dr. Ruto last visited the region in June, where he led a fundraiser in aid of a project to translate the Bible into Giriama language in Kilifi town.
