Your Leadership Is Visionary, Kagame To Kenyatta
President Kagame, who joined Kenyatta in the commissioning of the 140 MW Olkaria 1 Geothermal Power Plant in Naivasha, Nakuru County, said President Kenyatta’s exemplary leadership has led to tremendous progress and benefit not only for Kenya but the whole region.
The Rwandan Head of State praised Kenyatta and the Kenyan Government for playing a leading role in the improvement of infrastructure, energy and port services.
He assured President Kenyatta that his country is a genuine and reliable partner of Kenya in its transformational and visionary agenda for the East African residents.
“Kenya continues to make tremendous progress since you assumed leadership with your team of leaders. Your coming to office has re-energized all of us,” he said.
President Kagame said the commissioning of OlKaria Geothermal Power Plant is not only beneficial to Kenya but also to the whole region.
”Some people have been wondering as to whether we are producing power more than we need. The debate in Africa is to have sufficient electricity to power homes, industries and schools."
According to Kagame, production of adequate power will significantly cut the cost of production and contribute to better standards of living in the region.
He challenged producers to pass the benefits of reduced energy cost to consumers by lowering the price of basic commodities.
Energy and Petroleum Cabinet Secretary Davis Chirchir, who was in attendance, said the way to go for Kenya is to continue investing in Geo-thermal power generation as it is cheaper and sustainable.
