The Mandera County Ministry of Trade, Cooperative and Industrialisation today commissioned the Mandera Town Miraa market fencing project.

The county gave the tender of the project to women drawn from all the communities living in Mandera County. This is part of the County Government’s strategy to surpass the 30% reservation for the youth, women and disabled groups’ access to government tenders.

The miraa market fencing project is aimed at instilling order and hygiene at the market to curb disease, crime, illegal drug dealing and drug abuse. The ministry is also planning to put up better structures to help the miraa traders do their business in a decent and conducive environment.

The female contractors were urged to deliver quality work since the fence wall borders the seasonal water way(laga) on the rear side.

The event was officiated by H. E the Deputy Governor Hon Mohamed Arai and accompanied by Hassannoor Adan -Ag. County Chief Officer Trade, Mr.Abdi Ali - Governor’s Spokesman, Mohamed Adan-County Chief Officer Cohesion, Ibrahim Ahmed-Director Trade, Habiba Ali -Director Press Services among other senior County staff and Mandera County OCS Mr. Albert Kipchumba from the security side.

The Ministry has finalised the process of operationalising the County Trade Development Fund and the County Cooperative Development Fund which will be disbursed in the next financial year InshaAllah.

Under the able leadership of H. E Governor Capt. Ali Roba, the County Government plans to facelift the major towns in Mandera County to modern urban centres and plans are at the final stage to upgrade Mandera town to a Municipality.

Once the Municipality status is established, residents will have a bigger say in town management and planning through enhanced community participation.

The DG, in his speech to the women traders in the market, allayed the rumors peddled by detractors that the Mandera miraa market is being grabbed by private developers. The miraa traders were enthusiastic about the County’s initiative and expressed their gratitude for the ‘by women, for women’ project.
