This has also seen it attracts petrol stations, hotels, hypermarkets – Tumani and Choppies opening up the area to easy shopping, as this easily serves the big Kisumu Community living this side of town, from Manyatta, Car-Wash, Migosi, Lolwe, Kenya Re, Kibos, Mamboleo, Obunga, Nyawita, and even Tom Mboya estates.
