Luanda will get a fire engine after completion of spatial planning to upgrade the town to a municipality, Vihiga Governor Wilber Ottichilo has said. “We have experts on the ground for that work and once they are through, the required procedure to upgrade it to municipal will take place,” Ottichilo said on Sunday. Ottichilo spoke in Luanda town when the business community fundraised for their colleagues whose shops were destroyed by fire over a week ago.They raised Sh1.3 million. Nominated MP Godfrey Ososti urged Ottichilo’s administration to put in place a fire management plan for Luanda market, saying it is the leading revenue generating market within the county. “Luanda is also an important transit town to Uganda and the Great Lakes region, therefore its safety must be prioritised,” he said.
