“We are pleased that the Ksh2 billion Government of Kenya – Kuwait upgrading of primary and secondary schools’ proposal has been concluded.”
“The management team has set up, and soon, the four constituencies in Nyamira: West Mugirango, North Mugirango, Kitutu Masaba and Borabu will reap from the project,” the DP said in a statement.

“Discussed development issues, mainly on the completion of roads, electricity connectivity and Technical Training Institutes,” he stated.
