Governor Lusaka Launches State Of Art Kanduyi Bus Terminus


By Isabella Maua

Governor Kenneth Lusaka has launched the construction of a state-of-the-art Kanduyi bus terminus along the Eldoret-Malaba highway.

Speaking during the ground-breaking ceremony, Lusaka affirmed his commitment to creating job opportunities and leaving a legacy once he exits the governorship.

“This will provide job opportunities to our local people; this is the only opportunity for them to thrive. Many people are jobless, and by employing them here, we will have helped them a lot,” he said.

The project, which will cost a whopping Ksh 198 million until its full completion, will help decongest Bungoma’s main town.

With a set capacity of 5,000 traders, the terminus will serve up to 100,000 people in Kanduyi.

The 200 stalls, a restaurant, sanitation facilities, a refrigeration area for perishable goods, and a perimeter wall are a welcome relief to traders who have been plying their trade on dusty and unhygienic grounds besides the busy Eldoret-Malaba highway.

The governor called on the contractor to give first priority to locals for job opportunities.

Lusaka announced that his administration has earmarked the tarmacking of feeder roads surrounding Kanduyi Stadium to ease movement for traders, even as his administration plans to put up a trailer park at Sikata Market to decongest Kanduyi Market, which has seen an overflow of trucks parked on the roadside.
