Mt Kenya East Counties will adhere to shared economic responsibilities in order to reap maximum benefits for our people in the region.
H.E. Martin Wambora, the governor for Embu County, serves as the Treasurer of the Central Kenya Economic Block (CEKEB), which I serve as Secretary and H.E Francis Kimemia as the Chair.
It has a membership of 10 counties.
Today in Kieni South Ward, Runyenjes Constituency, while attending the retirement and thanksgiving service for my friend, The New Apostolic Church Senior Reverend shepherd Eliud Njiru M Njamiu, whose service in the religious and political sphere’s spans over 41 years, we discussed
mutual economic responsibilities and pacts to avoid duplication of set up of value addition factories in our region.
We did agree with my colleague that we must speak as a united block socially, economically and politically.
We have also agreed to initiate shared and jointly funded infrastructure such as bridges and dams along River Thuci that acts as our boundary.
Further, we have agreed to source for a common market for our coffee and avocado.
