Finally, Kenyans, especially Luos, can now fly to Homa Bay and back thanks to CORD leader Raila Odinga who officially opened the airstrip on Friday amid celebrations by Luopeans. The ceremony was well attended by members of the Lake region as they came to witness the major development that took place in Kabunde airstrip.
Raila commissioned three flights that landed in the airstrip with passengers aboard. Happy to have had the opportunity of having planes in their land, Luos couldn’t help but brag about the achievement. Someone even said that he will sell everything he owns in order to ensure that he sets foot, boards and flies in their own flights.
Below is a video clip showing the excitement at the airstrip during the ceremony.
