Major Road Works To Begin Soon in Sohe District

A road project inthe Sohe District of Oro Province is set to changethe lives of more than ten thousand people.

 

Member for Sohe, Delilah Gore, commissioned heavy duty machines to begin work onthe Waseta to Sasembata highway.

It was a celebration for both villages and those alongthe proposed new highway, as it isthe first ever done inthe district.

 

Whilstthe main highway is in a reasonably good state, this stretch of road from Waseta to Sasembata has been described as an ancient pathway.

 

Former Ward 14 Councillor Selby Emboge said this road has been neglected for years by former open members and Governors. And, this was a historic occasion for them.

 

Mrs Gore spent an hour withthe people of Waseta, informingthem of her service plans which have been highlighted inthe Sohe District’s Five Year Development Plan.

 

Following her brief stop-over, she made her way upthe rugged highway to Sasembata.

 

Another rousing welcome was held for her and her team enteringthe village.

 

Villagers here said travelling alongthe road has been a daunting task, particularly for women and children.

 

Speaking tothe villagers, Mrs Gore said she was well aware ofthe challenges faced bythe people as she has gone throughtheir experiences. Bet she said she has a great team with her to deliverthe services thatthe people need.

 

The Waseta – Sasembata road project will cost K800, 000.

 

Gore saidthe Five Year Development Plan outlinesthe districts development plans and projects, andthe people of Sohe will see more changes.
