Despite disrupting many aspects of life in Nakuru Town, the coronavirus pandemic may be a blessing in disguise as the town gears towards attaining a city status. The virus is certainly a game changer and many of the 600,000 Nakuru Town residents now feel things may never be the same again.

Governor Lee Kinyanjui has announced several measures to curb the spread of the virus, among them the relocation of public amenities from the town to enforce social distancing.

The main Wakulima Market has been relocated to Afraha Stadium Annex while the main matatu terminus has been moved to former Kenya Railways staff quarters near Bondeni Estate.

The once vibrant Nakuru main Bus Park was invaded by second hand clothes traders, leaving little space for buses. This forced up country bus operators to shun the terminus. Before Covid-19, the once quiet and cleanest town in East Africa was chaotic.
