Day three of Radio47’s western Kenya roadshow happened in the land of Matoke, Kisii county on Thursday, October 19.
Fans of Kenya’s fastest growing and Kenya’s only audio-visual radio station had a wonderful opportunity to interact with a section of presenters they only hear on radio.
The roadshow comes hot on the heels of similar electrifying roadshows in Kakamega and Kisumu counties respectively.
Like in Kakamega and Kisumu counties, the Kisii county roadshow commenced with an interview with the county’s deputy governor, Robert Monda, on Radio47’s popular breakfast show Breakfast47 hosted by Emmanuel Mwashumbe and Alex Mwakideu.
The interview took place right outside Quickmart supermarket.The deputy governor explained why the county is proposing to tax Churches KSh 5,000 for holding Kesha.
“When the churches do these night prayers (kesha) don’t they collect tithe? The county government wants a share of this tithe.
This is however just a proposal that will undergo public participation then voted for in the county assembly before it is signed by the Kisii county governor,” he said.
Capemedia.africa understands that should the proposal become law in the county, street preachers will be required to pay KSh 2,000 in order to conduct their business.
The roadshow crew which featured other Radio47 big names like Dr Ofweneke, Fred Arocho, and Ali Hassan Kauleni besides Mwashumbe and Mwakideu, then made several other stopovers in Kisii town Keroka market, Keumbu and finally at Suneka market.
Radio47’s western Kenya roadshow is set to make a final lap on Friday, October 20 in Kericho county where this year’s Mashujaa Day celebrations is taking place.
