On October 25, 1969, President Jomo Kenyatta travelled to Kisumu to officially open the “Russian Hospital” (New Nyanza General Hospital), a pet project of his fierce rival, opposition leader Jaramogi Oginga Odinga.
The Head of State, President Uhuru Kenyatta, on September 8, 2014 presided over issuance of cheques for Sh447 million to the South Nyanza Sugar Company to pay for farmers’ arrears.
The president was in the county to launch a Sh7 billion mosquito net distribution campaign that will cover 25 mosquito infested counties in Nyanza.
The #Migori incident Yesterday was very shameful, childish, disrespectful. Its important to respect the Presidency. Thanks to the President for not ordering Police Actions, it could have been terrible and a repeat of the 1969 discipline.
