For any town to be accorded a City status, there are factors that need to be achieved in line with the Municipality act.
To fast track Eldoret's journey to achieving City status, the Department of Lands and Physical planning is working towards fulfilling all the conditions.
These involve the introduction of Municipals in various Wards that neighbour the town.
The Public should also be involved in the decision making through a Public Participation exercise to sensitize and get views from the people.
During today's exercise, Lands and Physical Planning Nelly Jerotich visited various wards which include Kimumu, Kapsoya, Kipkenyo, Langas and Kiplombe ward.
Among the factors considered include basic amenities like water, road network, street lighting and town management.
