According to the governor, Kisumu County has identified various opportunities including Lake Victoria that offers incomparable sceneries to rich cultural heritage sites and this he notes requires a structured frame work to facilitate rational planning at the county, sub-county and local levels.
However, reading the speech on behalf of the EBS Director of physical planning Mr. Augustine Masinde, the Dep.

Mwangi further noted that the national spatial plan is important as it enables the realization of the constitutional principles of equity, sustainable development as well as the principle of land policy of efficiency, productivity and suitability.
