But the residents today witnessed an historic moment as Governor Charity Ngilu commissioned the recently completed kilometer of tarmac road straddling Tseikuru trading center.

The road was done under the Governor’s dustless town program aimed at upgrading streets in all towns across the county to bitumen standards thereby guaranteeing traders an enabling business environment.
