The State Department of Housing and Urban Development under the Economic Stimulus Programme (ESP) has allocated Sh. 10 million towards face-lifting of Majengo Market at Central Maragoli ward in Vihiga Sub-County.
According to area governor, Dr. Wilber Ottichilo, the renovation works would include construction of modern toilets, installation of water tanks and lights.
“For a long period, traders and buyers have been experiencing challenges while conducting business here. However, the situation is going to change soon,” noted Ottichilo.
“It will take two months for the contractor to complete the task,” assured the governor.
Addressing traders at the market grounds over the weekend, Ottichilo thanked the national government saying the project would provide a conducive transaction environment.
The county boss was accompanied by his Deputy Dr. Patrick Saisi, area Member of County Assembly, Evans Chunguli and Majengo Market Chairperson, Mrs Mary Amagove.
