Nakuru, Kenya: Nakuru County is set to reap billions of shillings from farming and other sectors once investors from Israel set base in the region.
During the ongoing county’s investor forum in Naivasha, Israel investors promised to invest in various sectors including farming and waste management.
According to Nakuru Governor Kinuthia Mbugua, they had identified key areas of partnership and would sign a pact with the investors before the end of the year.
Mbugua said the country had technological challenges in implementing some of the projects, adding that the expertise from Israel would help them achieve the much desired goals.
“We all know Israel is a dry country but they have been able to achieve the impossible through technology,” he said. The head of the Israel delegation Boaz Peled welcomed the co-operation, adding that his country was willing to support Kenya growth.
“We are happy to be here and we want to nurture this partnership,” he said. Kajiado Governor David Nkedianye said they would import the necessary technologies to convert dry areas into bread baskets for country.
