few days after the kitale l awcourt issued an order for the county referral hospital construction in trans-nzoia countyto be stopped,some leaders from Trans-nzoia county such us Cherangani member of parliament Wesley Korir and Kiminini member of parliament Chris Wamalwa have shown their satisfaction in the order claiming that the county government wasted public fund by buying a building worth 185 million rather than renovating the already existing hospitals such as Mt.Elgon hospital and Kitale district hospital.
However Trans-nzoia governor Hon.Patrick Simiyu Khaemba has come to his defense saying the county gorvenment was interested in building the referral hospital that will cater for the needs of the people and that all those claims were politics aimed to destroy his name.
He also said that since the court has given them upto thirty days to continue with the construction process, his aim is to make sure that he will continue with that project and the bus park construction that will be for the good of the people of Trans-nzoia.
He said all these while supervising the county governments’ projects in Kitale town where he urged small business personnel’s to pave way for the constructions of roads in town.

Imani Radio and TV ministries organized a weekend mission on 16th April 2016 in Apong’ai, Pokot. That is a few kilometers from the Kenya Uganda frontier. The team was loaded with boxes full of Christian magazines, Sunday school books, commentary books and Imani solar powered radios which have been installed with the Swahili Bible. The Team led by Jack Irungu, a presenter at Imani Radio Kitale, was cordially welcomed by the residents. Pastor Samuel Tulia and Reverend Christopher Siokani organized the congregation and ministered to them briefly before giving out the gifts. The residents were overwhelmed by the gifts. They could relate more with the radios since they use the sun to charge and Imani Radio is loud and clear in the area.
Insert: Residents receiving gifts from the Imani Ministries team. The residents requested if they could get bibles in their dialect since most of them are neither conversant with Swahili nor English. The team also dug boreholes so as to help the residents access clean water. They have a challenge of pit latrines. There is no single pit latrine in the area and they would be humbled if they get some. Despite all that, they thanked Imani Radio and TV ministries for bringing light to them.
