1 min read

Roads and Transport Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen presided over the resumption of Kenya Airways flights to Eldoret, marking a pivotal moment for the region after a decade-long absence.

Murkomen highlighted the importance of this milestone within the framework of the Bottom-Up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA), emphasizing the agenda’s goal to enhance connectivity across Kenya for the efficient movement of goods and people.

Speaking at the event, Murkomen stated, “The Bottom-Up Economic Transformation Agenda aims to connect all parts of Kenya and enable efficient movement of goods and people through different modes of transportation. The resumed flights testify to the great potential of counties as catalysts for growth and opportunity.”

The reopening of the Eldoret route is expected to have far-reaching impacts, facilitating crucial connections between families, fostering business opportunities, and nurturing the growth of the local tourism industry.

Additionally, small and large-scale farmers in the NOREB region are poised to benefit from improved transport logistics, maximizing opportunities like the African Continental Free Trade Area and key trade agreements.

Murkomen praised the collaborative efforts of stakeholders in reinstating the flights, stating, “Our collective commitment to regional development, connectivity, and economic prosperity is bolstered by this simple step that our national carrier has taken today.”
