12 July 2013, 19:18 Steve Wambugu

The Danish Ambassador to Kenya Geer Anderson has said Denmark government will continue to support the health sector in Level 1, 2, and 3 in the country.

Anderson said they will also help with construction of health facilities in the country as one way of improving health services.

He observed that the Denmark government diverted its attention in promoting health in the country since the election period was over which he noted was done in a free and fair manner.  

“Denmark government will continue to work with Kenyan government to improve health sector in the counties because it is very important,” he remarked.

While addressing Nakuru county assembly members on Thursday, the ambassador recommended the ward representatives for striving to bring development to the county.

He also urged the county assembly members to articulate issues that are ailing the electorates in their respective wards.  

He reiterated that his government is commitment to supporting devolution system in Kenya saying it will improve the well fare of the public.

“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.

He urged Nakuru county administrators to take advantage of all the parks in the county and promote tourism sector in the region.

Anderson said the county can generate more revenues if county leaders formulated policies to attract more investors.
