Unfortunately, this country has many competing interests. What's the need for hundreds of millions of taxpayers money being wasted to put up a monstrosity that will barely be used due to very low traffic volume, while local people don't even have piped water?

Most airstrips of this calibre have this kind of building. A larger number have a paved surface but no building at all, watu wanakimbia kwa miti kukinyesha. The remainder have murram/dirt surface with cow dung all over/overgrown bush/eroded surface.

Anyway, ni maoni tu.

Who has a pic of the Kakamega one?

Kitale is an agricultural hub, not a tourist destination. Me I was thinking more of a warehouse type of building not a terminal for passengers. Or we can live with that dump and build better roads to help those perishables get to market before they become manure!

By the way I have seen Kakamega and it is the same. It is actually he whole of western Kenya, same sorry state

And then the govt says they are working on developing tourism industry in Western Kenyan

These are latrines in the name of airstrips.

The Kakamega Airstrip though was paved and looks very nice even on Google Earth.....

Western Kenya will not have a large Airport soon, in my thoughts. Too close to Eldoret and Kisumu IA.

There have been concerteed efforts to pave more airstrips that host significant traffic. Today, Kenya has more than 40 paved runways.

Somewhere along the Kitale-Endebess-Suam road with Mt. Elgon (Ol Doinyo Ilgoon) in the background.

Kenya, Uganda seek transport corridor funds with eye on trade

Quote:
Kenya and Uganda plan to build another corridor to boost trade between the two East African countries.

Uganda National Roads Authority and the Kenya National Highways Authority are seeking funds from the African Development Bank (AfDB) for the project which will traverse Uasin Gishu County and to the west of the boundaries of Eldoret, Trans Nzoia.

The proposed road project dubbed multinational Uganda and Kenya: Kapchorwa Suam Endebess Kitale - Eldoret Bypass Roads Project is expected to start at Cheplaskei; about 13 kilometres from the centre of Eldoret town, following a north westerly direction traversing the Eldoret Kapsabet - Kisumu road at Kapsaret.

Secure 100 acres

Trans Nzoia governor Patrick Khaemba, in an earlier interview, told the Business Daily that they had intensified talks with the national government to secure 100 acres of the Suam forest on the Kenya-Ugandan border to set up a trading centre.

There is no trading centre on the Kenyan side of the border, and the road will save the country some revenue as Kenyans are currently crossing over to Uganda to buy goods.

Mr Khaemba said that residents at the Kenyan border are spending a lot of money in Uganda and if the AfDB approves the funding to tarmac the Kitale- Suam highway, economic activities would be spurred.

The Ugandans at the border rely on Kenya for fuel, fertiliser and maize seeds while Kenyans purchase bananas, sugar, electricity in addition to accommodation offered in rental apartments.

Rainy seasons

The 35 kilometre of the road on the Kenyan side and 73 kilometre stretch on Ugandan side is in a poor state which renders it impassable during rainy seasons. AfDB has promised to redesign the road, he said.

The 73 kilometre project, on the Ugandan side, starts from Kapchorwa town ending at Suam bridge, which forms the boundary of Kenya and Uganda in Bukwo sub- county.

The Kenyan government, under the same project, intends to construct Kitale - Endebess - Suam (C45) Road to bitumen standard.

Resettlement action

The road is 45 kilometres and is a major trunk transport link to Uganda. It is an existing road alignment with a 40 metre width and tarmac on 19.7 kilometres from Kitale to Endebess and the rest from Endebess Suam (25.3 kilometres) is gravelled road in poor condition, read AfDBs resettlement action plan summary.

Already, an environmental and social impact feasibility assessment has been conducted and submitted to the National Environment Management Authority.
I hope this project gets a nod. We need more of these projects away from Nairobi to spur growth evenly around the country. Since AFDB plans to redesign it, I hope they make plans to loop it into LAPSSET in future and add an SGR in there. I am glad the two governments are working with African Development Bank (AfDB) and not the world bank!

This may explain one reason why Ruto has frequented Uganda lately people in UG are complaining he needs to stay away since he is campaigning for Museveni. I agree with them on that. The reason the Ruto camp gave was he is making so many trips to forge peace between the warring communities on the KE and UG border and to plan for regional development.

I sure hope it is the later.

Why not? This country has a deficit of good public health facilities.

Isn't it ironic that each county wants to build a 'world class' Hospital yet they can't even pay their doctors well, some aren't even paying them at all. Devolving Healthcare was a mistake.

Devolving the HR function to the counties was a mistake. Kenya needs a national Health Services Commission. Counties are pretty good at everything else that involves a juicy tender.

I get sick when i hear this jubilee byline of healthcare should have never been devolved! jubilee has always been busy to sabotage devolution! they have been fighting counties for 4 years instead of being facilitative. they cant comprehend in most cases the Constitution gave the national govt policy functions! they want to be involved where the constitution doesn't allocate them roles,one of them is in healthcare because of loss of money if they let the roles go!!
just goggle healthcare in kenya 50 years back with central govt mgt and compare miaka mitatu even with jubilee sabotage. we are very far. and if you wonna see jubilee national govt hospitals ni kenyatta na moi eldoret. county hospitals are way better!!

yes devolution has led to more construction and maybe improvement of standards in hospitals. So what about doctor's pay? Some counties I keep hearing doctors complaining they aren't being paid on time, some being paid less than in neighboring counties e.t.c. I like that counties have all these level 5 hospitals and such but can they keep up with the national standards of such hospitals. BTW you should abstain from having this "jubilee vs opposition" mentality on all things Kenyan. It's quite a blinder and leads down a path of taking propaganda as fact and going with whatever the party leader says.

pay should depend on cost of living in counties across sectors. Healthcare is devolved and we should all support that or we should look for ways to resolve challenges there not try to explain away problems by wishing it wasn't. Local health challenges and needs differ markedly across counties. Doctors should accept they are county employees. Let's not have a hangover on these issues when the system was changed by the constitution Kenyans ratified democratically and legally promulgated. It's the law of the land.

change does not come easily resistance is the word world all over. the national govt is suffering from that. the pay problem again is a creation of the national govt. you go behind the backs of county govts which are mandated to handle health issues and sign an illegal CBA in 2013 promising doctors heavens just to sabotage counties!! now the same is haunting not only counties but wenyewe national govt! the issue of delayed salaries is national treasury problem. they never release the constitutional mandated shareable revenue to counties as laid down by law as per deadlines. the same money pays salaries! where do you want the counties to get the money from. counties turned to banks for loans but the treasury vetoed this path too! its warped politics of jubilee!!!
