Mr. Samuel Ndegwa, the County Trade Chief Officer, emphasized that this project aligns with Governor Susan Kihika’s manifesto, which prioritizes creating a conducive trading environment for Nakuru County residents.
The Chief Officer made these remarks during the project handover from the contractor to the traders.
