Hospitality and other service industries are at their peak in the Lakeside town of Naivasha courtesy of the iconic safari rally competitions that are ongoing at the Kedong ranch since the 24th transitioning to the weekend.
With reports indicating that all hotels are fully booked by hundreds of guests who have travelled from far and wide to witness the sports trill, small-scale traders have also got an opportunity to make a killing out of the event.
In a short video clip shared by Nation on its social media pages, a jovial but shy Wafula disclosed that he had travelled from Eldoret to Naivasha to sell his items which is a hot cake to men that are camping at the Lakeside town.
Wafula says that the demand is too high and he does not regret his decision to shift his business from Eldoret to Naivasha.
The ministry of sports, cultural and heritage under his stewardship of ambassador Amina Mohamed had projected that around shillings 6 billion will be injected into the economy by the end of the iconic event that made a comeback after a 19-year hiatus.
" It is estimated that this event will have a direct injection of approximately shillings 6 billion in the form of foreign currency into the economy". Read a statement from the ministry.
The event comes as a major boost to Kenya's tourism sector that is currently reeling from the effects of Covid 19 in that led to a sharp decline of international tourists.
