Dredging works and removal of water Hyacinth from Lake Victoria are set to begin in the following days, Kenya Ports Authority announced today.
“Tomorrow, January 18, HE Rt Hon. Raila Amolo Odinga will officiate commencement of the exercise here at the Kisumu Pier,” KPA said in their official statement.
KPA Managing Director Dr Arch. Daniel Manduku will be among the top government officials to attend the ceremony.
The dredging and the removal of hyacinth are just part of the great transformation of the lake related activities which include the construction of the new port as well as rehabilitation of the related infrastructure, said KPA.
Kenya Ports Authority is just one of the participating agencies in this initiative.
