STRENGTHENING PARTNERSHIPS WITH PRIVATE SECTOR

CECM-LENRCC Dr. Philemon Bureti today met with General Manager Kaimosi Tea Estate Mr. Angira in a bid to strengthen Partnership between County Government and the Tea Industry.

The tea estate through the assistance of County Government plans to install 16 Solar panels each weighing 2 tonnes on a 21/2 parcel of land located at the factory.

“We are committed to ensure that we collaborate with investors for the benefit of our residents and the County at large. Installation of solar panels will assist in bringing down the cost of electricity while on the hand improving the economy of tea farmers as the money that is being used in paying electricity can now be added to the bonus that our tea farmers get and also increase the Corporate Social Responsibility done by the estate, ” said Dr. Bureti.

Area MCA Hon. Wilson Sang appreciated the efforts being done by the factory as far as community engagement is involved. Also present was Chief Officer Madam Sally who supported installation of solar panels as it is a clean energy condusive to the environment.

So far, the Company builds one classroom per year, educates 8 bright and needy students to secondary level in the area as part of the Corporate Social Responsibility.
