Meru county to build modern open-air mar­ket at Nkubu, says MCA Mbu­rugu

The Star (Kenya) - - Region -

Meru county will build a Sh14 mil­lion open-air Nkubu mar­ket to cre­ate an en­vi­ron­ment con­ducive to cus­tomers and traders.

Nkuene MCA Nick Mbu­rugu said he is grate­ful to Gov­er­nor Peter Munya for al­lo­cat­ing the funds. He said the fa­cil­ity will change res­i­dents’ eco­nomic status.

“Nkubu mar­ket was not in the bud­get, but the gov­er­nor al­lowed the al­lo­ca­tion Sh14 mil­lion. This is why he is be­ing fought and it is a modern mar­ket, where peo­ple sell in­side but what they sell on the dis­play at­tract cus­tomers pass­ing on the roads. No other mar­ket is built in such stan­dards in the county,” Mbu­rugu said.

He spoke in Kawampungu in Imenti South. Mbu­rugu said his ward has used Sh24 mil­lion on ed­u­ca­tion and Sh41 mil­lion on per­ma­nent hir­ing of ECDE teach­ers.
