Munya inspects leather park progress

Peter Munya the CS Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Cooperatives inspected the KSh 2.2 billion Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP), 2 warehouses for tanneries worth 695 million and 2 warehouses for leather goods manufacture worth 499 million at Kenanie in Machakos County to check on their progress.

The CS said he was satisfied with the ongoing works as some machines for the leather park have arrived and others are on the way. Munya said that the development of the Leather park will promote value addition for enhanced economic impact in terms of Foreign Direct Investment inflows in export-oriented manufacturing as the facility has a capacity to produce 10 million shoes per year. He said this will boost livestock farmers’ earnings from the sale of hides and skins and create employment.
