Residents of God Nyango in Oyugis town Homa Bay County have applauded a local iron ore mining company for ploughing back to the community by building schools, churches, and offering employment to the locals.

The consortium company operating under the flagship Skylight Ltd  which is the first one of its kind in Sub Saharan Africa extracts from iron ore products like twisted bars,deformed bars,angles iron,window section,nails and wire rods among others.

The exploration work in Oyugis started four years ago and the main processing plant is at Awasi in Nyando Kisumu County where over 1200 locals have been employed.

Speaking to the press during a tour by some foreign engineers in both facilities, the Managing Director Janteen Patel praised the local communities for their maximum cooperation and support adding that their attitude will spur development as envisaged in the memorandum of understanding. Mr Patel further emphasised that all the agreed development plans with the locals will be adhered to its entirety.
