The Eldoret Municipality Chair Julius Kitur  has stated that Eldoret is well prepared to provide hospitality  to  thousands of  visitors expected  to grace  the 8Th devolution conference   slated  from 15th -19th  August   this  year.

This year’s conference seeks to reflect on the last 10 years of devolution and explore locally and internationally recognized methodologies for strengthening systems to enhance transformational service delivery in Counties.

Kitur  notes this event only happens twice in two years and the next time the event will take place in Eldoret  is after 94 years hence  the  need for  the business  community and  the  residents to seize  many business opportunities presented by the  conference  .

“Activities going on in the municipalities and the entire county show that we are prepared in terms of hospitality and accommodation. People who own hotels and even the transport systems have been communicated to and have already braced up.” Stated Julius

The Eldoret Municipality Chair shared that accommodation facilities are fully booked hence  the  need  for the neighboring counties and municipalities to provide  accommodation for an overflow of the  over 10,000 guests  who will be in need of social amenities

He assures that the security has their arsenals set for the national event.

“Since this is both a  county and  a National  event  security will be heightened  , the county Government under the  leadership of  Governor  Jonathan  Bii   has  also assured  that  all county  enforcement  officers will augment The National police  at  strategic places just to ensure  all our  guests  are  safe .” He added

Through the county devolution conference committee plans are under way to map out strategic streets that could be used   by people who own courier shops and those who make carvings and sculptures to showcase their crafts and also sell them.

Julius has assured that the affluent visitors are promised to get 5-star treatment in Uasin Gishu’s grandeur hotel such as The Eka Hotel, and other top leading hospitality facilities such as The Boma Inn, Sirikwa Hotel, and many more.
