Sh6Billion Waste Recyling Plant Raises Job Prospects Kakamega (News Central TV)

The construction of a multi-billion-shilling waste-to-energy plant in Mumias East, Kakamega County has started a decade after it was initiated.

A delegation of top county officials led by Governor Wycliffe Oparanya and a foreign investor presided over the groundbreaking ceremony of the Sh6 billion project expected to incinerate approximately 800 tonnes of municipal solid waste per day.

The event gives hope to a community that has been struggling to put food on the table since the collapse of Mumias Sugar Company.

Oparanya’s administration purchased the 15-acre piece of land when he was first elected governor in 2013. The parcel has been lying idle, dashing hopes of the project ever taking off.
