One of the visiting livestock experts Marcello Pronto said he was impressed by the project which he opined would be a game changer in the area adding that the tannery was up to the game but advised on the need for animal skin care during slaughtering for value addition.

On her part, the County Executive Committee in charge of Lands Sereti Mpeti assured of full support from the locals in addition to improved accessibility of roads, water, electricity, and available land.

In addition to a recently launched industrial park by the National Government, the abattoir project, which will be a facelift of the current slaughterhouse, is predicted to turn around the economy of Narok County.
