Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga received the State and county officials on their arrival at Nyaribo Airstrip.

Tourism

According to him, commercial flights mean that travellers cut down on time of travel while the tourism industry and businesses get a huge boost.

CS Joe Mucheru echoed his sentiments saying the commercial flight is a game changer and the airstrip that was under-utilised will now be of great significance to the county and region.
