Oloolua market traders in Kajiado County are the beneficiaries of a new modern market with a capacity of over 200 market stalls.
The new Oloolua market is expected to be a major boost for Oloolua traders by creating a conducive business environment.
Speaking at the launch of the market, Kajiado Governor Joseph Ole Lenku said, “We shall continue to create more trading spaces to enhance conducive business environments. The traders who will be occupying the market will enjoy a three months waiver on county levies and fees to ensure they settle fast,” said Lenku.
County Executive Committee Member (CECM) for Trade Alvin Kimani lauded the market committee members and traders for collaborating with the County Government through the construction process and balloting phases.
“I would like to appreciate the Kajiado County Government for the establishment of the Oloolua market that will help to improve trade in this area. The traders have worked together with the county government and maintained peace throughout the process, “said Kimani.
The market that cost the devolved unit approximately Sh13.5 million is expected to revitalize the county’s economy.
Funds had been allocated for the project in the 2019/2020 financial year after members of the public raised the need for the construction of the market during a budgetary allocation public participation forum.
