Mr. Kulati Wangia
Our Ministry will be the driving force that will advance economic prosperity for the County Government of Kakamega, its business, Neighbourhood and residents.
We wish to create a local environment that will stimulate balanced growth through safe transport systems, modern and durable roads and buildings, business assistance, Neighbourhood developments, job creations and development of skilled labour.
We believe that our ministry is more than just infrastructure, buildings, safe transport and job creation, but a pathway to strong families, integrated communities and self-sufficiency.
We wish to make the public have an opportunity to fully participate in, a deliberate journey to make Kakamega County a world class County in its operations.
