Earlier in the day, he launched the building of Taranganya-Ntimaru-Nyamtiro-One Stop Border Pos and -Senta-Kegonga Road at Senta Market, Kuria East Constituency.
Ruto said that the government will be expanding our road network to stimulate rapid economic growth in the country by opening up our rural areas to opportunities.
"We will fast-track the completion of ongoing road projects and embark on new ones to increase our tarmac road network," he added.
The President will later launch construction of Motemorabu-Suba Kuria-Nyangonga at Nyabohanse, Kuria West.
