Written by Celine Abuga & Odhiambo Shem on November 29, 2021
There have been claims on Facebook that Kisumu residents walking on the cabronized pathways within the Central Business District (CBD) will have to pay Ksh. 50 per person.
The claim stating that from July next year, 2022 people will have to pay Ksh. 50, comes in as the CBD is still under construction and more pathways being cabronised. Sky FM looked into the claim and found out to be false.
Speaking to Communication Chief Officer Kisumu County John Oywa , he clarified by saying those are rumors spread by those who want to tarnish the name of the Governor of Kisumu County, Professor Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o who is dedicated to his work of changing the face of the lake city . “I treat this to be fake news and nothing like that has been discussed,” said Oywa.
He went ahead and said that the contractors who were assigned the work have been paid and everything is going on well.
For the past 3 years, the Kisumu County Government through the City management has been working on changing and beautifying the face of the Kisumu City.
