Commotion was witnessed in Kitale town earlier on friday when officers from the county government blocked the main highway in order to stop Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) from plighting in the route.
The main aim was to prohibit the Public Service Vehicles from entering the town due to the relocation of the main stage from wherever it was to the new location now opposite Kitale Museum. The exercise comes a day after all vehicles using the commonly know Western and Lodwar stage were ejected from the stage to give room for expansion of the town.
Meanwhile, business people and local traders using informal structures alias ‘vibandas’ demonstrated at the county government premises to stop the demolition of those structures. Trans-Nzoia county communication director intervened and calmed down the traders. The exercise is on and according to the minister in charge of planning in the county, they are trying to plan the town and create space for town expansion. She also urged everyone to be cooperative during the exercise since there is need for planning
