NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 17 – 35,000 people have visited the Two Rivers Mall since it opened to the public on Valentine’s Day, according to Centum Investment Managing Director James Mworia.

Mworia says the mall on Limuru Road has created job opportunities for over 2,500 people so far with the mixed-development project expected to generate 10,000 jobs when complete.

President Kenyatta officially launched the mall this afternoon where he commended Centum for the development saying the government is committed to reforms that ease doing business in the country.

He took cognisant of the fact that Kenyan banks contributed largely in financing the mall, citing that it is an indication that Kenya’s financial sector is showing maturity.

“This is the kind of Transformation that my administration is promoting,” said the President.
