KISUMU county government has issued an order calling for the demolishing of illegal structures in major towns across the county.
Speaking to journalist in his office today, roads minister Eng. Kodera said the county government was geared up to effect the order in a programme aimed at face-lifting the lake side City and other towns within the county.
Eng. Kodera said this was the last warning from his office to those traders still operating under illegal structure adding that his office has in the past issued several similar warnings but which have been ignored by the traders.
Among the notably markets likely to be affected by the order are Kisumu, Maseno,Mamboleo, Kibos,Kolweny, Ahero and Akala.
The roads minister appealed with the affected traders to cooperate with the directive which will equally see an improved working condition.
Kodera at the same time revealed that his ministries will soon embark on roads inspection as it prepares to pay contractors who participated in the project.
He however warned that should the inspection reveal shoddy work, then the culprit contractors will be forced to go back to the job.
Locals have however showered with praises Eng.Kodera for the improved road network across the county.
