Ruto Inks Ksh31 Billion Farming Deal With UK

President William Ruto is stepping up his pledge to guarantee food production by setting aside more than 11,700 hectares for climate-smart farming. In a statement on Tuesday, the United Kingdom Government indicated that an agreement was reached between the Kenyan Development Corporation and UK-funded investor United Green. Ruto and UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak ratified the agreement to produce foodstuff during a meeting on the sidelines of the COP28 conference. Without divulging the fine details of the agreement or the location of the project, the statement indicated that the land utilised would be bigger than Nairobi National Park. The park measures 11,700 hectares. "A Ksh31 billion agreement has also been reached with the Kenyan Development Corporation and UK-funded investor United Green to establish an area bigger than Nairobi National Park for climate-smart farming – this will save Kenya $200m (Ksh30.6 billion) annually on food imports and help reduce Kenya’s trade deficit," read the statement in part. The two countries also signed a Ksh12.5 billion Menengai Geothermal project expected to generate 35MW of electricity, providing approximately 750,000 Kenyans with affordable and clean energy. https://www.kenyans.co.ke/news/95307-ruto-inks-ksh-31b-farming-deal-uk-pm-rishi-sunak
