Surprise as RAILA ODINGA sneaks into Kisumu like a thief to inspect collapsed company days after UHURU commissioned Rivertex - See who he was with


Friday July 5, 2019 - Former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, sneaked into Kisumu yesterday to inspect the collapsed Kisumu Cotton Mills (Kicomi), boosting hopes for the revival of the region's only ginnery.

In the impromptu visit, Raila was secretly driven into the compound of the firm in a lean convoy of just two cars. 

The revival attempts to resuscitate the company have hit a snag several times due to ownership wrangles.

The former Premier is said to have gone into a 30-minute meeting with a team believed to be the custodians of the firm after which he was taken around for an inspection tour before he hurriedly left.

Raila’s visit to the firm comes barely a few days after President Uhuru Kenyatta commissioned Eldoret-based Rift Valley Textile Limited (Rivatex) which is expected to get its raw materials from 24 cotton growing Counties, most of which are within Nyanza.

Raila also conducted a private tour of the Kisumu port for the second time which is undergoing renovation.

The ODM boss, who was accompanied by Suna East MP, Junet Mohammed, Kenya Railways boss, Atanas Maina, and Nyanza Regional Commissioner, James Kianda, and Kisumu Deputy Governor, Dr. Mathews Owili, visited to inspect progress on the ongoing Ksh3 Billion rehabilitation works, scheduled for reopening in August.
