Saturday, October 1, 2016 - The Government of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, has received a whopping sh 31 billion from Germany to support Kenya in the next financial year.
According to a statement sent to the newsrooms by Germany’s head of press and political counselor in Kenya, Dr. Alexander Puk, the money is meant to support Kenya in its development agenda and not for the 2017 political campaigns.
The money will be used to mitigate the refugee crisis in Kenya, support youth employment, agriculture, rural development and health sector.
“The longstanding co-operation in water and sanitation will be gradually phased out to make room for the new focus areas -sustainable economic development, promotion of youth employment and vocational training-to be gradually phased-in,” Puk said in a statement.
“Co-operation in other priority areas –agriculture, rural development and health as well as in a range of other areas will continue,” he added.
