Residents urged to create conducive environment for the investors

Residents of Homa-Bay County have been asked to create a business friendly environment that can attract more investors into the County.

Homa-Bay Town deputy County Commissioner Chuck Masua appealed to the residents to shun activities that may drive away investors who have shown interests in the county.

Mr. Masua said investors like friendly environment devoid of political thuggery which can hinder their development plans, adding that negative publicity about Homa-Bay County can also be detrimental to prospective investors.

Speaking to KNA in his office, the administrator said that continuous negative publicity like public demonstrations which result to looting and destruction of property has contributed to low number of people who want to invest in the area.

At the same time he also noted that, more investors are still planning to come to Homa-Bay County following the establishment of Tom Mboya University College, which has recorded high number of students with less accommodation spaces.

The administrator further reiterated that investors only needed a peaceful environment to help in the growth and development of both private and public institutions.

He however applauded members of the public for working closely with security officers to eradicate rampant cases of cattle rustling in the county.
