The Head of State will then head to the Uhuru Market complex in Juakali area which is expected to host hundreds of traders who have been relocated from the streets.
The Ksh. 350million project is currently in the first phase and sits on 23 acres of land owned by Kenya Railways Corporation and will host 10,000 traders upon completion.
