Traders Whose Stalls Were Demolished By Oparanya Can now Smile

Traders whose kiosks were demolished in Kakamega town will soon have a place to operate from as the County will relocate them to the new Sichirai market that is under construction.

Governor Dr Wycliffe Oparanya said the new market will be ready in the next three or four months and will accommodate all traders who were moved out of the town centre.

Addressing officials from Kenya Nation Chambers of Commerce and Industry(KNCCI) Kakamega branch, the Governor said the affected traders will be given priority in allocation of stalls to operate from once the market is ready.

He noted that the market will be the largest facility in town and will be able to accommodate a big number of traders.

"The road to the market will be tarmacked, security lights installed among other facilities that will provide a conducive environment to traders to conduct their commercial activities," said Dr Oparanya.

He said he was clearing the town off the kiosks as part of the requirements towards his dream of making Kakamega a city.

The Governor asked traders to support the journey to elevate the town to the city status adding that they will be the biggest beneficiaries.

He said his administration has set up the Kakamega County Microfinance and the Kakamega Investment Agencies to support economic activities of entrepreneurs in the County.
