A professor who is seeking to unseat Kisumu Governor Jack Ranguma on an ODM ticket says county governments have failed to achieve their development goals due to lack of an integrated development master plan.
Prof Gordon Wayumba, a geospatial science expert, says Kisumu has been dishing out projects based on political considerations and not according to people’s needs.
“We have cases where Kisumu County government built dispensaries in areas which already have these facilities and fails to consider areas where these facilities are needed. Such problems can be addressed through proper mapping of the county and preparation of an Integrated Development Master plan which I will use if elected,” said Wayumba.
Wayumba, a former director of School of Surveying and Geospatial Sciences at Technical University of Kenya warned that Kisumu is sitting on a time-bomb of population explosion, poverty, unemployment and lack of land for new investments.
“One of my plans is to set up a land bank which will help us secure large tracts of land for development.” he said.
