A chief from the Makonde Community will be employed to administer a new location that will be hived off Kinondo, Coast Regional Coordinator Nelson Marwa has said.

Marwa said the new location to be called Makongeni is only awaiting Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery’s approval. Speaking during a ceremony held by the community after they were given Kenyan IDs, Marwa asked the Makonde to use their citizenship to develop the country.

“You should now apply for loans and start businesses, you can do business anywhere because you are now Kenyans,” said Marwa. - Tobias Chanji
