“We have opened talks with France to establish a nuclear energy reactor as we also pursue expansion of green energy production to enhance growth,” he said.

Speaking on arrival from a two-week foreign trip, the PM said restoration of the Mau and other water towers is vital.

He told a Press conference on arrival at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport that his efforts to market the Kenyan agenda were not in vein. The PM said world leaders he met pledged support.

He said France, through the French Development Agency, had increased funding to geothermal related activities to the tune of $ 7.2 billion (about Sh540 billion) to boost energy supply in the local market.
