his morning H.E Governor Gideon Mung’aro together with the Deputy Governor Hon Flora Chibule joined H.E Dr. William Samoei Ruto, President and Commander-in-Chief of the Republic of Kenya and other leaders for the official launch of Mtwapa- Kwa Kadzengo- Kilifi (A7) Road Lot 2.
The road project is part of the Mombasa-Kilifi (A7) Road and forms part of the Multinational Malindi-Lunga Lunga/Horohoro-Tanga- Bagamoyo East African Coastal Road Corridor. The road which is approximately 40.4km starts at the proposed new Mtwapa Bridge in Mtwapa town.
The road will promote regional integration by improving connectivity between Kenya, Tanzania and Somalia. It will also improve traffic flow, traffic safety and level of service through the dualing and expansion of the existing road, as well as enhance Mtwapa’s growing reputation as a a 24 hour trade hub in East and Central Africa.
The County Government will allocate land for the construction of a modern Market in Mtwapa, now that the President has committed Ksh 200million through the relevant Ministries towards the Project.
H.E Governor Mung’aro, on behalf of the county is grateful for the support that will create a conducive trading environment for thousands of local small scale traders.
In attendance were also the Cabinet Secretaries Kipchumba Murkomen (Roads, Transport and Public Works) and Aisha Jumwa (Public Service and Gender).
