Wapi Waititu?

Together with Deputy President H.E William Ruto, Senate Deputy Speaker Prof. Kindiki Kithure, Deputy Governor Hon. James Nyoro, Kikuyu M.P Kimani Ichung’wa among other M.P’s and M.C.A’s we today attended the ground breaking ceremony of Kikuyu market in Kikuyu town.

The market which which is being funded by the Government of Kenya through Nairobi Metropolitan Services Improvement Project in partnership with the County Government of Kiambu and the World Bank is scheduled to be completed on 17th May 2019.

The Deputy President has promised the commitment of the Jubilee Government towards it’s realization of the Big4 transformative agenda which is focused in improving the livelihood of all Kenyans as well as promoting the economic growth.

Towards this course my administration will continue promoting the growth and strengthening of Technical Colleges across the county since we believe the success of the big 4 agenda heavily relies on the skills of middle class graduates from technical colleges. The National Government has in turn promised to support our technical institutions and has already set aside Ksh. 800 M that is meant for the expansion, improvement of the facility as well as ensure higher students intake. Moreso all technical college students will be eligible for student loans besides receiving a capitation of Ksh. 30,000 that will be given to every student enrolling in this facilities.

The D.P also assured Kiambu residents that over 30,000 residents are set to benefit from the phase two and three of the last mile connectivity which will commence soon.

As a County Government this marks the beginning of our engagement in chatting the way for development in Kiambu and Kenya in general. It is worth noting that in collaboration with the National government through NaMSIP, we are constructing 3 other modern markets namely Kihara, Ruiru and Juja. All of these markets have been advertised and contractors identified. Works at Kihara market relocation site started in April and are expected to be complete in the next one week in readiness for a ground breaking like the one we are having today.

Kikuyu market will have the following amenities:
1.Onsite Borehole with elevated tanks

  1. Ablution blocks

  2. Adequate parking

  3. Solid waste management

  4. Adequate trading spaces

  5. Recreation facilities

  6. Adequate Lighting

This market with 3 floors and a ground floor will have 630 stalls and has a capacity to go up a further 2 floors to accommodate more traders in future.

My government has also set plans to develop other such markets in all our 12 sub-Counties and soon we will also be launching their construction. Some of the markets that have been planned include: Githurai, Madaraka (Thika), Kiambu, Wangige, Limuru, Ndenderu, Soko Mjinga, Kimende and Githunguri. In addition the National Government has promised us a grant to construct a further 37 retail markets.

My government has already started with markets like Witeithie, Limuru Hawkers, Kamwangi and Muchatha.

It would be impressive but we all know by now all these grand projects on paper are merely avenues for looting.
Dream them big, loot them dry.

Who designed that plan to start with? Cost estimate please? people will sell tomatoes inside that brothel? This will be a dangerous trap though.

Toka Ruto apewe ruhusa ya kutanga tanga, anatanga tanga kabisa.

Hii itakua just like the proposed and launched Westlands Market. Exists only on paper

Ruto and YT2 need to employ Stylists.
Their taste in attire could benefit from a total makeover.

@spear update on the Western Bypass

Bado, public participation took longer than anticipated. The design was then completed. NLC is finalizing land acquisition on a few pieces of land. This time contractor insists on getting to site only when its complete to avoid expensive equipment and manpower idle time.

I have seen some site preparation on Lower Kabete Road opposite the approved school. Chinese trucks all over. Thought work would start sooner.

We have lost a year on this project, let’s hope all have been fixed.
