Kenya's Kitui county opens new apparel factory

31
Oct '18
Kenya
Governor of Kenya’s Kitui county Charity Ngilu recently inaugurated the Kitui County Textile Centre (KICOTEC), the first ever garment factory by a county government that is expected to employ over 600 people and boost skill development of the youth. The factory will reduce garment costs, raise revenues and help the service industry in the county grow, he said.

People in the county now can buy locally-produced garments instead of those manufactured in Nairobi, Thika and Kiambu, she said.

The step will boost small and medium enterprises in the county, she added. (DS)
