President Hon Uhuru, Prime Minister Hon Raila Odinga, Raphael Tujo, Cabinet, Marine and others were in Kisumu for the launch of the dredger on Friday the 18th of January.
Greenergia K Ltd was requested to bring their Aquatic Weed Harvester to the Port of Kisumu for the launch.
The company organised a personal demonstration of the harvester for the President on Saturday. Both national and county governments are ready to talk to tackle the hyacinth challenge. Follow-up meetings have taken place and discussions on-going to start a Public Private Partnership to clean the lake.
