Nairobi - The government has signed a mega KES 102 billion deal with the United Nations Development Assistance Framework UNDAF that will see development projects spread across the country.
UNDAF, which will take off between the years 2014 and 2018 will see development projects spread out across the country and at county level.
The programme will aim to spread development, social awareness and training techniques in various fields across the country.
President Uhuru Kenyatta who witnessed the signing of the agreement at State House Nairobi Wednesday was excited over the upcoming project and hailed the UN over the initiative saying it would greatly ease the government's burden in spreading out such projects in the country.
" I am delighted to sign an agreement which will see the country grow from an initiative that is well thought out and timely, he said.
" It is a great initiative that will improve the lives of many and I commend the UN and partners for sponsoring it and cooperating with Kenya, he said.
He however warned those who will be tasked with handling the projects to ensure they are well handled and in time.
" It is prudent that the projects are well run in a transparent manner and that they are completed on time, he added.
The projects will aim to spread awareness and development in sectors such as education, water, sanitation, HIV Aids and other fields.
