Wavinya gives new directive after launching Kangundo Bus Park

Machakos Governor Wavinya Ndeti has issued a directive to building owners in Kangundo town as she launched the Bus park.

She gave them a one-month deadline to repaint their shops and buildings.

This announcement was made during the inauguration of the new Kangundo bus park, a key project aimed at revitalizing the town’s infrastructure.

Governor Ndeti emphasized the importance of this initiative, noting that the freshly renovated bus park should not be overshadowed by dilapidated and unkempt buildings.

 “We are committed to elevating the standards of Kangundo town. However, this vision cannot be achieved if we allow old and shabby buildings to mar the landscape around our new bus park,” she stated.

The governor warned that failure to comply with the repainting mandate within the specified period would result in fines. 

“You have asked for a month to complete the repainting. Be assured that after this period, any shop that has not been repainted will face penalties,” Ndeti declared firmly.

In addition to addressing the appearance of buildings, Governor Ndeti also called on matatu operators to fully utilize the bus park facilities. 

She underscored the importance of compliance to ensure smooth operations and enhance the town’s overall growth.

“I urge all operators to cooperate fully with this new arrangement. My office will remain vigilant in enforcing these standards to guarantee orderly and efficient transportation services,” she added as the crowd cheered.

This directive is part of a broader strategy by the Machakos County government to improve urban aesthetics and infrastructure, aiming to foster a more welcoming and prosperous environment for residents and visitors alike. 

Locals in Kangundo welcomed the move expressing hope that the once popular town will now reclaim its lost glory stating that’ the bus park built over 10 years ago had turned into a white elephant.
