Finally the road construction from Kapsokwony to Chepkitale has started. The Sabaots, especially those from Mosoop are happy about this new development and hopefully it is a sign of positive prospects ahead. Thanks to Governor Ken Lusaka and entire Bungoma county government (Kenya).
"Good people, the journey for those using Kaberua-Chepkitale road in Mount Elgon has been long, we are going to make it shorter and less bumpy. This road has never undergone any maintenance since 1972, we have a KES 118 million budget towards the construction of this road." said Bungoma Governor Kennedy Lusaka.
