I have today received at my Machakos office, the Equity Chief Executive Officer, Dr. James Mwangi and Devki Steel Chairman, Mr. Narendra Raval, who is a personal friend and a true friend of Machakos County.
I later received on behalf of Machakos level 5 Hospital, a donation of locally produced Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) worth 8.5 million shillings from the Equity Group Foundation, that will go a long way in keeping our health workers safe. I applaud the Equity Group Foundation for their commitment to this cause for the next 18 months.
The Covid-19 period has shown us that local manufacturing is a viable enterprise and with the right support, we will completely eliminate importation of products that our people can make, increasing employment opportunities, improving the lives of millions of Kenyans and growing the economy exponentially.
I thank the private sector players that have come forward to support the government’s initiatives to fight COVID-19 and look forward to greater partnerships, post Covid-19 to put Kenya on the map for the right reasons.
