KAM Nakuru holds dinner meeting with Kenya Power

KAM Nakuru and Kenya Power recently held a dinner meeting where KAM members and invited guests were taken through the company’s strategy with relation to upcoming projects which will see a reduction in outages and better power delivery to large consumers.

The dinner  themed “Bringing Business closer to Government” and co-hosted by KAM and Kenya Power was attended by representatives from the business community, county government, central government and various regulatory authorities.

In his address, Kenya power MD, Dr. Ben Chumo promised local manufacturers the delivery of more power in the coming months. The current supply of over 1500 MW is expected to increase to 5000 MW by 2016. The mix of power sources will change with focus being more on geothermal energy and less on diesel to bring down the cost of electricity. The cost of Generation is expected to go down from 14 US cents/kWh to 9 US cents kWh. To improve reliability and quality of power supply there will be dedicated lines to manufacturers. He indicated that Kenya Power was entering into power purchase agreements to ensure power supply targets are met but challenged manufacturers to ensure the supply is consumed.

Speaking at the event acting Regional Manager, West region, Eng. Rosemary Oduor said Kenya power would enhance maintenance and inspection of transmission infrastructure to reduce outages. Nakuru industrial area would also have a dedicated feeder by April 2014. She further indicated that plans were underway to create alternative supply sources for major large power customers and specific officers would be re-assigned to them to improve communication. To achieve reliable quality supply construction of a transmission line between Menengai and Soilo substations by GDC and KETRACO is underway and is scheduled for completion by December 2014.

Nakuru Governor Hon. Kinuthia Mbugua who was the chief guest lauded KAM for leading the business community in Nakuru County in engaging constructively with the county Government saying the engagement starting with the Governors Roundtable that came up with a blueprint for the county was a great achievement.

On the recently passed county finance act he said his Government had received submissions from various sectors and was fine tuning them with a view to making amendments to the act. “The finance bills resulted in demonstrations everywhere apart from Nakuru because we allowed ourselves to listen to each other. We shall look at the issues, make it a learning point and come up with a refined bill and everybody will be happy,” said Mbugua.

He called on the business community to marshal their resources and invest in the county saying that after making several trips abroad to scout for investors he realized local investors also have the capacity to invest and change the face of the county.

“We do not need trips to China or elsewhere to look for investors. If you look around and see the commercial buildings that local investors are putting up using local resources, it shows you the local capacity. We do not need to spend a lot inviting external investors,” said the Governor.

Commenting on the delay in setting up of Municipal Boards, Governor Mbugua said the delay had been occasioned by the delay in completion of classification of Cities and Municipalities. “We hope that when the classification is completed and the boards are constituted, members of the business community will be ready to serve in the boards,” he said.

Speaking at the event Chapter Chairman Rajen Shah commended the County Government for listening to the business community but urged for the speedy implementation of the issues agreed upon to lower the cost of doing business and to ensure a conducive business environment.

In his remarks KAM national chairman Polycarp Igathe said the road to success is always under construction and called on the business community to continue engaging with the County Government to improve on service delivery. He also called on the county Government to focus on a few issues and execute and the effect would soon be felt.

KAM vice chair Pradeep Paunrana said that KAM has had many engagements with various stakeholders in order to ensure that devolution works for business. He further stated that KAM is not an association that finds faults in everything but rather one that provides solutions with a view to providing a business friendly environment that would help develop our country.

KAM CEO Betty Maina commended the Governor and the business community for talking to each other as that is the only way issues can be resolved amicably for the good of all. She also presented to the Governor the “County Business Agenda” a document that resulted from the discussions at the Governor’s Roundtable held in May 2013. The document will be used as a guide and an advocacy tool for Nakuru County.
