The meeting, also attended by the Speakers and Leadership of the County Assemblies of Machakos, Makueni and Kitui is a continuation of a program that was started by the three counties in 2016.

Friday meeting was meant jumpstart the Bloc which will also include all leaders such as Senators, MPs and MCAs.

The meeting was hosted by the Archbishop of ABC Church Timothy Ndambuki in Machakos and also attended by the Regional Leaders Forum, Ukambani Elders Forum and Ukambani Clan council.

I support the strengthening of this economic bloc because it will enable us as three counties to synchronize our development agendas and initiatives that will grow wealth and roll back poverty. We will also be able to attract funding and support from various development partners.

We will be meeting often to ensure that we free our people from the yoke of poverty by working together to leverage on our strengths.
