Kiambu County and the U.S. Government through USAID have today signed a memorandum of understanding that will increase trade and investment in Kiambu through the Prosper Counties initiative that was unveiled by President Uhuru Kenyatta in October last year.
This initiative targets Kiambu and 7 other counties, and signifies a joint commitment to Kenyan-led development in these counties. Speaking during the ceremony at Kiambu County Headquarters, Kiambu Governor James Nyoro said that Kiambu looks forward to deepening the collaboration and support particularly in health, agriculture and education sectors.
On his part, USAID Mission Director Mark Meassick said the United States Government wants its programs to be co-created, co-implemented and co-measured to address problems and solve them at the county-level. Other leaders who attended the event include Kiambu County Secretary Dr Martin Njogu, Kiambu County Assembly Majority Leader Gideon Gachara, several Kiambu County Executive Committee members, other leaders and officials from USAID.
