County gifts traders with stalls

Some 86 traders in Mandera County were all smiles today after being allocated market stalls.
Trade, Investment, Industrialization and Co-operative Development acting executive Mohamud Adan officially commissioned the Mandera East Economic Stimulus Project (ESP) market.
The project is aimed at cushioning the vulnerable population against the negative impact of COVID-19.
The stalls are also aimed at alleviating poverty and improving locals economic status.
The market with a total of 86 stalls will see the 86 beneficiaries occupy the market without payment of Ksh1500 monthly rent for three months before starting payment.

The move, the CEC said, is meant to cushion the traders against the effects of COVID-19.
The new market brings to five the number of those operationalised by the department of Trade, Investment and Industrialization this financial year. The others are Corner B market with 114 stalls, Ashabito (24 stalls), Rhamu (58 stalls) and Eymole ( 28 stalls). The Governor Ali Roba’s administration targets to operationalize a total of 8000 stalls across the county in next financial years.
The 86 beneficiaries of Mandera ESP Market were identified after a thorough verification exercise through a just and transparent balloting.

The traders are to sign a two-year tenancy agreement and were issued letters of allocation.
