    Background: At the Nairobi Industrial Estate, the Kenyan Minister for Commerce and Industry, Dr. Julius Kiano, officially opened the Chui Soap Factory on Tuesday (27 May).

    The Chui factory is the first soap factory to be established and operated by Africans in Kenya.

    The company bought an old soap factory for 22,000 pounds sterling and invested about 300,000 pounds sterling rebuilding it and equipping it with modern soap-making machinery.

    It later bought another soap factory and continued to operate it using traditional, hand-made methods. The Chui factory produces three kinds of laundry soap and plans to extend its range soon.

    Equipment worth 70,000 pounds sterling has been ordered to enable the factory to make toilet soap, soap powder and liquid soap.
