In today's Daily Nation, Kenya Airports Authority advertised the long awaited 'Mandera International Airport.' This is like a Madaraka Day Gift to the people of Mandera.

The proposed International Airport Project now earmarked for Wargadud location will deliver an estimated 4.5 Billion shillings in infrastructure investment over the next 3 years. This would be a remarkable turn of events for Mandera County, which until now has attracted almost no National Government investment in its infrastructure.

Parts of the project are already under way. The National Government also is planning to construct more 200KMs of tarmac from Mandera to Elwak. As a County Government, we have lobbied for these projects in the face of spirited opposition from other leaders calling it a misplaced priority.
