President William Ruto says the government will fund and expand fish farming in Nyanza region with an aim of supporting more livelihoods.
At the same time, he says the government will also add value to allow farmers earn more from the economic activity, with Ksh. 600 million allocated to help in the processing of fish in Homa Bay.
“Fishing has a huge potential that must be exploited. When we add value, we will earn more and generate more jobs for the youth,” President Ruto said Friday during the opening of the Homa Bay Municipal Market in Homa Bay Town.
Earlier, the President met the Homa Bay County leadership at the Tom Mboya University that presented him with the region’s development plan.
