In case you missed it, traders in Nakuru’s Wakulima Market, received the new Wakulima Market Welfare bus on Monday. The bus was the realization of a dream they had and shared with Nakuru County Senator Susan Kihika, several months ago.


In April this year, Senator Kihika and Nakuru East MP led several MPs and Senator to raise money for the realization of the dream. Eight months later, on 9th December 2019, the bus has been delivered.


Celebrating around Town

The excited Wakulima Market traders started by taking a ride in the bus around town. Singing, dancing and praising the Lord.
