KISUMU County Women rep office has embarked on innovative agricultural programme aimed at boosting economic standards of locals in the region.
The programme that is being rolled in phases include encouraging fish farming, poultry farming,dairy,rabbit keeping among others.
Already a host of farmers across Kisumu County are engaged in active poultry farming after the office of Rose Nyamunga trained them on the same as well as on fish farming.
Nyamunga has called on interested farmers to quickly construct fish ponds as she tends to use her own fish pond to supply them with fingerlings.
And recently about 40 teachers were picked from different schools to a neighbouring Uasin Gishu County in Rift Valley province where they were trained on modern commercial dairy farming.
A section of the trip beneficiaries have lashed out at those criticizing a chain of agricultural development initiated by Mrs. Nyamunga terming them a group of busy bodies who are anti-development.
Nyamunga since her electrifying election to the post has been roundly attacked by a caucus of political failures formed by women fashioning themselves as elite business women.
