Nandi County Governor Stephen Sang has confirmed that his administration will consider naming a street in honour of the late Bishop Alexander Kipsang Muge who became the first Anglican Bishop of Eldoret Diocese.

Speaking during the funeral ceremony of the late Herma Muge, the widow of the late Bishop Muge at Kapkoimur village in Chepterwai ward, in Nandi County, Governor Sang cited that the County will remember his efforts by naming one of the streets in his honour.

He revealed that Bishop Muge who was born in 1948 in Nandi County, was a man of God who stood by his principles and many Kenyans will remember him for his efforts in championing for democracy, fight against graft, ethnicity and land grabbing.

He said Herma will be remembered for the motherly role she played following her husband’s death twenty-eight years ago as she stood firm on religious matters.

Naming a street after a person is common in many countries, and is seen as an honourable gesture, and streets are mostly named after famous historical figures.
