BURN, who are the manufacturers of the Jikokoa and Kuniokoa stoves hope this year they will manage more sales both in Kenya and the rest of the East African countries.

“We hope the economy stabilises in 2018 and give us more opportunities to invest and improve our sales. Kenyans should not let politics creep in this year as this will jeopardise our economy further,” he said.

BURN hopes to partner with the government in a campaign to encourage more Kenyans to buy locally made products like the Jikokoa and Kuniokoa stoves adding that they have served over 1.4 million Kenyans with jikos in the last three years. 

“Since inception, we have sold 350, 000 Jikokoa stoves and we are looking forward to selling 200,000 pieces this year. But we are appealing to the government to set encourage local investment by giving support to homegrown investors,” he said.
