    Trade cooperatives and Investment CECM Madan Esther Kilonzi accompanied by her Infrastructure counterpart Eng. Jacob Kakundi have this morning carried out an inspection on the progress at the Kitui County Ballast Crusher in Kwa Kilui, Kitui Rural.

    Currently the site is being prepared for blasting which will ensure there is enough material for the crusher to run for a minimum of 60 days continuously with an estimated production capacity of 120 tons per hour on an 8 hour shift.

    This translates to about approximately 1,000 tons of premium ballast in a day.
