Laikipia County to get new modern market

Laikipia County has been selected as one of the first five counties to benefit from the construction of a new ultra-modern market under the Kenya Kwanza Government.

Housing PS Charles Hinga made the announcement during a tour of the county, saying that he will dispatch a team of engineers to design the proposed two-story market in Nanyuki town in partnership with the County Government, area elected leaders, and traders.

The Kenya Kwanza Government aims to construct markets in all 47 counties to attract people with high purchasing power. During the extensive tour of the current market, which was led by Laikipia Governor Joshua Irungu and Laikipia East MP Mwangi Kiunjuri, the PS and engineers from the State Department for Housing and Urban Development deliberated on immediate interventions to support traders carrying out their businesses without interruptions.

The PS promised that the government, in partnership with the County Government, would make arrangements for traders to move to a different site to pave the way for the construction of the modern market.

He also assured traders that priority would be given to existing traders once the market is complete and called on the County Government to register traders immediately to ensure they are not short-changed.

PS Hinga went on to assure traders that the government would build extra stalls for other traders, a matatu stage, as well as other social amenities like a decent ablution block and a hall for nursing mothers to give them the dignity they deserve as they carry on with their hustles.

He also lauded the County Government of Laikipia for providing land for the affordable housing program, saying the area has huge tracts of land that can be used for the project.

Governor Irungu said he was looking forward to the partnership with the government to make affordable housing a reality. He said Laikipia has the potential to decongest other neighboring counties through the affordable housing program.

The construction of the new ultra-modern market is expected to boost economic activities in Nanyuki town and the surrounding areas, while the affordable housing program will provide decent and affordable housing to the residents of Laikipia County.
