Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago on Tuesday gifted the famous Silver Line Hotel with a new year special by opening the refurbished joint.
The hotel, known for its political significance in the Eldoret Central Business District, has always been associated with the governor.
The hotel is a political monument and has always been used by leaders in the region to pass strong political statements.
Speaking during the opening ceremony, Governor Mandago said the refurbished hotel will create more job opportunities for hundreds of youths in the county.
He said his administration was keen on creating a good working environment for businesses.
“My administration is poised to support businessmen by creating a good working environment for them to conduct their businesses at ease,” said Mandago.
He pointed out that Eldoret town was in track to becoming a giant business centre in the country.
The County Boss said he will ensure all back street roads within town are tarmacked for businessmen and women to use them to conduct their businesses.
“We will make sure that we tarmac all the feeder roads in town for it to be accessible and conducive for the environment for doing business and everyone will get to do business,” he added.
