Nyeri County seeks Britain's support

03 July 2013, 18:24 Wangui Joseph

Nyeri County ward representatives on Tuesday asked the British High Commissioner Christian Turner to help in mobilizing private investors establish their businesses and industries in the County.

Through the assembly Majority Leader Anthony Mwangi Kibuu, the members said it is only through a cordial working relationship that the economic status of the County can be salvaged and uplifted.

Kibuu requested Turner to lend a hand to farmers and help them get a larger market of their farm produce in Britain which he said will also help reduce poverty levels in the County.

The High Commissioner had paid a visit to the County Assembly after touring various constituencies like Othaya where he visited Iriani tea factory.

“We would like to have investors who will also enable us process and market our farm produce both locally and at internationally,” Kibuu told Turner.

Speaker David Mugo said the assembly would like to have a fully computerized resource centre and a broadcasting room.

He also said ward representatives should tour countries where devolution is working and have a view of how parliamentary democracy has evolved.

Turner said Kenyans should remain ambitious towards realizing fruits of devolution noting that his country took ten years to implement devolution.

He added that his government is committed to principles of devolution in Kenya and there is no point of turning back.

“In Britain, devolution was instigated in 1997 but was fully functional in 2007,” said Turner, urging Kenyans to remain strong and focused.
