Kajiado Deputy Governor Martin Moshisho has salvaged a solid and wastewater management project whose financiers wanted to pull out.
Sweden had expressed concern over the project financed by Umea City by the International Centre for Local Democracy (ICDL) over the political climate and the change in administration since the recent 2017 elections.
Moshisho led a county delegation to Sweden together with County Secretary Francis Ole Sakuda was successful in reviving the financiers’ hope that the change in County administration would not affect the goodwill of the project.
“This is an opportunity we could not have lost. It will be worth more than Kshs 300 Million in the long run. We are glad we have negotiated and the financiers have confirmed they will fully support the project” Moshisho said.
The project is meant to partner with the County to build capacity on solid and wastewater management ahead of a mega recycling plant.
“The first phase is now underway. We are equipping stakeholders on how to come with a master plan,” said the head of Umea City’s Head of International Affairs, Cathrine Alenskar.
