Migori county has the best natural resources that need to be showcased to attract investors both from within the country and foreigners.
Its high time we motivate and activate our people to take full advantage of the existing natural resources other than complaining and blaming the government.
Migori county has the best talents, which we shall showcase on the Migori county festival.
