The government will inject Sh2 billion to boost the blue economy through Lake Victoria, including the purchase of a Sh600 million ship to connect the region’s port.

This is according to Interior PS Dr. Raymond Omollo ahead of President William Ruto’s four-day development tour in Luo Nyanza counties from October 6th, next week.

”The government will spend Sh2 billion for improving blue economy activities in Lake Victoria and that is a sign that it is ready to transform the lives of Nyanza people,” Dr. Omollo said on Saturday in Homabay.

The Interior PS thanked the national government for seeing it fit to revive the blue economy of Lake Victoria.

“We say thanks to the ministry of transport through Kenya Ports Authority (KPA). Today We are here to do assessment and visits to the piers lined up for rehabilitation,” he said.

President Ruto will launch projects on road development, blue economy, and information and communication technology sectors across the four counties of Homabay, Mogori, Siaya, and Kisumu.
