Azimio leader Raila Odinga has castigated the govenment for frustrating the construction of the Sh 20 billion Koru Soin multi-purpose which is the long lasting solution to the Nyando floods.
Raila said for decades the construction of the dam has lagged behind yet funds being allocated to facilitate this were being misappropriated.
He said more allocation had been put towards its construction and nothing had been done until now.
“We had earlier sat with Uhuru Kenyatta when he was the President and talked on the construction of this dam, money was allocated and the contractor even went to the site”.
Raila said that it was unfortunate that the money has been slashed and the dam is not amongst the 12 listed dams to be constructed within the country.
“In the current budget, 12 dams have been listed for construction but Koru soin dam is not amongst them, ”
Speaking in Migingo Nyando Sub County, Raila noted that the same was also done to the Mamboleo road whose funds were slashed.
