National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetang’ula has announced plans to facelift Bungoma to city status after Eldoret town.

Wetangula who also served previously as the county’s senator, said he aims to ensure that Bungoma becomes a city in his lifetime as a speaker and politician.

The Ford Kenya leader asked County leadership led by Governor Kenneth Lusaka to plan properly for Bungoma to grow to the desired status.

“We now have Nakuru, Kisumu and Eldoret queuing. Bungoma must be the one behind Eldoret in this region as the next city,” Wetang’ula stated.

He suggested that roads in the town should be named according to Constituency names, such as Tongaren road.

Wetang’ula spoke at the Bungoma County Assembly premises during the groundbreaking of debating chambers and the launch of the Konza digital skills laboratory.

He also criticized the ongoing rehabilitation of Masinde Muliro stadium and called for those sitting on public land to vacate to offer space for stadium expansion.

Bungoma Governor Kenneth Lusaka echoed Wetang’ula’s sentiments, citing the rehabilitation of Masinde Muliro stadium, Matulo airstrip, street lights installation, and road upgrades as some of the plans for face-lifting the town.
