By Isabella Maua

Bungoma governor Kenneth Lusaka launched an administration block at Milimani Estate, Bungoma, on Wednesday worth Ksh 498.

The 10-storey building will lessen the cost incurred by the county government through leased facilities scattered around the Central Business District, as well as provide a lasting solution for office space.

Speaking during the ground-breaking ceremony, Lusaka noted that the new block is his brainchild project, committing to ensure it’s completed on time.

“This is my legacy project; it is a one-stop shop for all our administrative operations and will subsequently consolidate our services to the residents,” he observed.

He added that the construction site will create job opportunities for locals, urging the contractor to utilize the youths for a manual and skilled labour force.

“I have instructed the contractor to use the locals during the construction process, as part of empowering our people,” he assured.

The administration block will house county administration, all departments, a service delivery unit, and resident call centers, among others.

The legacy facility, located in the heart of Milimani suburbs, provides a serene and conducive environment for operations, and its completion has been projected to take a period of 3 years, as per the estimation by the Department of Lands, Urban Planning, and Municipalities.
