“We are in full support of the devolution system in the country and am happy ward representatives have taken this seriously which is a good thing,” he said.
Anderson said he was happy with the composition of Nakuru County assembly members adding that it reflects the face of the country.
He added that Nakuru county has the potential of industrial growth saying it should be explored to the fullest by bringing in investors.
“This county has the capacity of becoming an industrial base in the country which is good because this county is the face of Kenya,” said the Ambassador.
He also observed that equal distribution of county resources is the only key to propelling the economy of the county.
