Prof Kibwana was also recognized for the food processing programmes that his county government had introduced early this year.

He further urged all county government plans to be aligned to the national Kenya Vision 2030 blueprint, as much as they have their own individual agendas.

President Kenyatta delivered his speech through a live video link after he cancelled his trip to Kakamega due to bad weather conditions.
