You will not be going to JAPAN to buy a used car – RUTO announces how Kenyans will be buying vehicles in NAIVASHA at a cheaper price

Sunday, January 14, 2024 - President William Ruto has announced that from April this year, Kenyans will be buying second-hand cars in Naivasha at a cheaper price than in Japan.

Speaking on Saturday, Ruto said Kenyans will be buying their popular cars in Naivasha in Kenyan Shillings instead of the dollar.

According to the president, the government has engaged a Japanese company that will set up an auction center for second-hand cars at the Naivasha Special Economic Zone.

 "The car auction that people used to go to in Japan will be happening here in Naivasha. We have agreed with that company that, starting in April of this year, you will get a whole bunch of cars. 

"And instead of buying those other cars, you're asked for dollars; now the cars will be sold here in KSh. Get prepared; you can sell cows and goats to buy cars. And the market will not only be for Kenya; it will also be for East Africa," Ruto said.

The head of state said his Kenya Kwanza administration will equip the Special Economic Zones with the necessary facilities to attract investors.

 Ruto made the remarks at Maai Mahiu, Nakuru County, where he commissioned the Sh 700 million, 90 MVA Naivasha Special Economic Zone Sub-Station.
