While on the tour of Kisumu, Uhuru Kenyatta presided over the ground-breaking for a new state-of-the-art brewery that East Africa Breweries Limited (EABL) is setting up in Kisumu.
The plant is being set up at a cost of Sh15 Billion and will start operations in two years. It is expected to create more than 1,500 jobs for the locals and provide a ready market for more than 22,000 sorghum and cassava farmers from the Nyanza counties of Kisumu, Homa Bay, Siaya and Migori.
After inspecting the plant, Uhuru, as expected, hit the counter and was offered a sip of Senator Keg by the bartender. Shock on her.
He was quoted as saying, ‘Hiyo ni kidogo sana, ongeza,’ amidst laughter from those who attended the fete.
The moment was caught on camera and the photos shared on social media.
