COUNTY REVIVES KAMUNYARO MARKET.
In a bid to create more space for the growing small-scale traders, the County Government through the Department of Trade, Tourism, Industrialization, and Enterprise Development has started the process of reviving Kamunyaro market in Soiyet, Nandi Hills Ward.
In light of this, the department held a public participation forum at the grounds to gain insight into the public’s perspective and concerns regarding this initiative.During the session, members of the public expressed their concerns and needs regarding the revival of the market, emphasizing its pivotal role as the mother of the surrounding markets.
The revival of the market will not only create more space for traders but also increase business and in consequence revenue compilation for the county, as well as create employment for the residents.
Kamunyaro Market is known from the ancient days as one of the oldest and biggest market which started in the early 1980s. The market attracted many traders since the Eastern Produce company used to pay tea farmers at their factory and Kamunyaro was the closer market.
Speaking at the event, Trade Development officer Mr. Amos Saina promised the residents that the Department is going to set aside funds for construction of market stalls and fencing of the said market as the core concerns raised among others.
Present at the meeting were Nandi Hills MCA Hon. Edwin Kemboi, Nandi Hills ward Administrator, Area Chief, and staff from the Departments amongst others.
