All premise owners in Kitale town have been directed to paint their properties olive green.

Governor George Natembeya on Wednesday said the initiative is through the decision made with guidance from the Kitale town board.

The chosen colour will serve as a distinctive identity for premises in Trans Nzoia.

It was attended by hundreds of county workers and members of the business community.

Governor Natembeya added that a formal notice would soon be issued to landlords, instructing them to refurbish and beautify their commercial buildings by painting them.
