Governor builds mud-houses each costing Sh100,000!
Housing is the basic necessity of humanity along with food and clothing but when it comes to provision of housing from government, the citizens expect proper housing.
In October 2016, Vihiga Housing Project and commissioned by Governor Moses Akaranga became the laughing stock of the county and the country in general after he was pictured proudly opening some newly constructed mud-walled houses.

It was said each structure swallowed a whopping Sh100,000.
Akaranga and his media handlers did not see anything wrong with the commissioning ceremony as they proudly shared pictures of the houses and launching occasion on the county Facebook page!
