Kenya: Kericho to Expand Market At Sh15 Million

Kericho government is set to expand the town's market at a cost of Sh15 million.

Governor Paul Chepkwony said the planned expansion is aimed to decongest the only market in the central business district. Traders carry out their business outside the market due to lack of space.

During a meet-the-people tour, the governor mingled with the residents for close to eight hours, consulting them. He was with MCAs Joel Siele and Samuel Ngetich.

He directed Environment executive Gilbert Tuwei to ensure floodlights are installed within the market, saying traders should be able to carry on with their business until mid night.

He also directed Tuwei to ensure broken sewers within the market and other parts of the town are repaired. The governor was responding to complaints made by traders at the market.
