The new market on Kangundo Road is scheduled to open its doors at the end of this month, which will be welcomed with a sigh of happiness by the Wakulima Market’s traders.
In three weeks, the market will be officially opened by President William Ruto and Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja after a five-year wait.
The newly constructed market, worth Sh800 million, was built to house vendors who had been displaced by road construction work on Kangundo Road, Mtindwa, and the dualization of Outering Road.
Additionally, space will be allotted to vendors from the Marikiti market in the heart of the city.
The Governor stated during his Wednesday market trip that the minor disagreements over stall allocation would have been settled before the launch.
