President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday evening toured the coastal city of Mombasa to inspect the upgraded network and street lighting project.
The Mwangaza Mtaani project, which cost Ksh 1.2 Billion, is expected to make the popular tourist destination operational for 24 hours. Mombasa Old Town has also been lit up at a cost of Ksh 45 Million.
Accompanied by a section of Coastal leaders and Kenya Power’s Dr. Chumo, Uhuru took casual strolls on the streets of Mombasa as he interacted with some locals.
The inspection comes a day after the Head of State toured the headquarters of Kenya Ferry Services in Likoni. To alleviate the challenges facing the ferry services, the government plans to build the Dongo Kundu bypass. There is also a proposed construction of the Changamwe bypass that will link the western part of Mombasa and the North Coast.
