Moses Kuria: Kenya Will Ban Importation Of Shoes From 2024

From the next year, Kenya will ban the importing of shoes. According to Moses Kuria, the Trade Cabinet Secretary, the nation will have enough shoes to meet domestic demand.

Kuria said that the government would establish a leather plant in Laikipia County while presiding over the groundbreaking ceremony for an industrial park in Rumuruti.

President Ruto’s administration will forbid the importation of shoes, according to CS Kuria, and will instead establish a local shoe manufacturing sector.

According to the Trade cs, the animals in Laikipia can produce enough shoes for export.

Kuria continued by addressing the in attendance MPs that his office would advocate for the installation of a 50% tax on all imported shoes in order to support domestic manufacturing.

Joshua Irungu, the governor of Laikipia, stated that the county will support the leather factory program by requiring that all cattle purchased in Laikipia be slaughtered first and that only carcasses be permitted to leave the county.
