During her second day in Kajiado Deputy UK High Commissioner Susie Kitchens met with members of the Kajiado and Ngong municipal boards, the County Commissioner and the Deputy Governor to discuss challenges facing the County and strengthening partnership opportunities between the UK and the region.
Highlighting the UK’s support to Kajiado to the County Assembly, Ms Kitchens said: “One of the UK’s priorities in Kajiado is working together to enhance education opportunities for children. Through our Girls’ Education Challenge we are supporting 90 schools in the County.
“The UK is proud to support devolution. We have contributed almost 3 billion shillings over 4 years to provide capacity building and technical assistance to devolution and to county governments including Kajiado.”
She also used her address to discuss corruption, as British High Commissioner Nic Hailey had done that same morning, describing it as “a significant barrier to inclusive and sustainable economic growth”.
Reiterating that the UK would support the county in its fight against graft, she said: “I urge all of you here to support the fight against corruption for the benefit of all in Kajiado.”
