The Kenyan government is set to spend Sh15 billion ($149 million) to rollout a countrywide electricity connection through the Last Mile Connectivity project.
Energy cabinet secretary, Charles Keter, who was speaking at ACK St Joseph Kipkaren Parish in Uasin Gishu County, announced this over the weekend.
Keter said that the Jubilee government is determined to ensure nationwide power connectivity, the Daily Nation reported.
“The Jubilee government has no intention of locking out some parts of the country in the provision of electricity as all regions will be treated equally in the new connections to improve the lives of Kenyans,” he stressed.
Under the “Last Mile Connectivity Program" by the Government, I'm proud to say that 95% of my constituency is connected to electricity.
