Kakamega County Executive Member for Lands, Housing, Urban Areas & Physical Planning Alfred Matianyi has clarified the vast spread rumors that the Coalition for Reform and Democracy (CORD) will hold a rally at Muliro Garden on Saturday 2nd April 2016 as not factual. Speaking to media today at the county headquarters, Mr. Matianyi said the cabinet passed a policy early this year which put Muliro garden to remain a recreational facility for the residents and the rest of the people who visit KakamegaTown. Matianyi however said the government has moved the rally to Kakamega Muslim Primary, which is an open space, big enough to hold a population of over 10,000 people. All attendants are asked to observe law and order during and after the rally (County Government of Kakamega, 01.04.2016).

More to come!
