IT’S ALL SYSTEMS GO FOR KOBUJOI ESP MARKET
Traders at Kobujoi on Friday last week were elated following the official launch of Kobujoi ESP Market by H.E. the Governor Stephen Sang. Completion works for the project began in 2018 and is now ready for use.
The market was built under the Kenya Economic Stimulus Package (ESP) by the National Government in 2010. However, the ESP programme elapsed before the market was completed.
The County Government of Nandi, through the Department of Trade, Investment and Industrialization therefore undertook the completion of works for the Fresh Produce Market. This project facilitates traders to sell their wares in a clean, safe and a conducive environment. The market is up to modern standards with proper market amenities.
The location of the market is ideal and is serviced by a well maintained road network. It is the biggest market in Aldai subcounty and serves a huge population and brings together traders from the neighbouring Kisumu and Vihiga Counties.
Speaking during the launch, the Governor reiterated his commitment to ensure economic growth of the county through provision of market infrastructure as part of his agenda to map Nandi as an investment destination in the region.
Traders and residents at large welcomed the project as it will spur trade activities in the area.
