New factory for school uniforms set up in Kenya
Kitui County Textile Centre (Kicotec), a new garment factory, has been established in Syongila market,  about 4 km from Kitui town along the Kitui-Nairobi highway in Kenya. The factory is modelled on the Export Processing Zone (EPZ) garment industrial unit, where it will run 24 hours on different working shifts employing more than 600 young people.

The new Sh20 million ($0.2 million) factory has received 74,100 garment orders so far. The aim of establishing the factory was not only to create hundreds of direct and indirect jobs, but also to retain the millions of shillings that parents in the county use to buy school uniforms from manufacturers in Nairobi and other counties, Kenyan news agency said quoting Kitui county Governor Charity Ngilu.

Around 145 electric sewing machines have been installed together with other embroidery and pressing machinery in the factory to ensure the garments meet the highest quality standards. “With estimated 486,000 students in both primary and secondary schools in the county, the factory has a ready market, and is expected to stimulate the local economy,” said Ngilu.
