ODM leader Raila Odinga has praised the Galana Kulalu project amid allegations of misappropriation of funds.
Raila said the project was not a white elephant as it has been bashed in the past by crirics.
“We have come here to witness for ourselves, we were hearing reports that funds for the project have been embezzled but we have witnessed something good,” said Raila during tour of the project.
The 1 million-acre project on completion is expected to produce over 20 million bags of maize, a move that was expected to slash imports from Uganda and Tanzania.
However, critics including politicians and wananchi have slammed the project saying it has failed to produce enough maize to cushion Kenyans from hunger pangs despite massive investment.
