The County Government of Kisumu has pledged to assist the people of Seme Sub County to develop and produce food crop in the expansive Mboha Valley to feed Kisumu County as it is one of the food baskets planned.
The County Governor Jack Ranguma says Mboha Valley is one of the most important land resources for development in Seme which has never been exploited over several years ago.
Ranguma says for a sustainable community, the valley must be exploited to produce enough food to feed the people of Kisumu and for export to the outside world.
He says Kisumu County will be food secure once farming commence in the valley and urged the community to roll their sleeves and work.
He says his government will avail the required resources to the community to be able to start tilting the farm for a better future.
We will provide water for irrigation and other required services to allow farmers to be able to till their farm with ease, said Kisumu County Governor Jack Ranguma.
Speaking in Seme when he launched the program at Mboha Valley, Ranguma announced that more tractors will be bought to help in the tilting of the farms.
He told the community to get organized and locate the size of their farms in advance to avoid conflict that might threaten the start of the project.
West Seme Ward Representative Benter Ndeda whose ward the valley lies in says the project will uplift the livelihood of the locals.
This is a gold mine which has not been exploited and my people must now wake up and venture into proper farming and be able to gain more from farming, said Ndeda.
Ndeda urged her people to support the project and work hard to get better harvest.
