Kenney will guest the turn over of the newly completed Tetuan-Guiwan footbridge. It is a project undertaken by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and funded by Growth with Equity in Mindanao (GEM) Program.

City caretaker and administrator Antonio Orendain Jr. will represent Mayor Celso Lobregat in assisting Kenney in the ceremonial cutting of the ribbon and in the inauguration of the bridge.

The Tetuan-Guiwan footbridge is the 27th infrastructure project implemented by the American government through the GEM program in this southern port city.

On July 6, 2009, Kenney together with Lobregat unveiled an infrastructure project in Tugbungan village.

She is also expected to grace other USAID-GEM initiated projects to be held at the Zamboanga State College of Marine Sciences and Technology (ZCSCMST) and other venues.

Kenney is expected to depart for her new assignment in another country this month. (Bong Garcia)
