Kitui County is making its mark on the world stage by launching school shoes made in Kitui. The Governor, Charity Ngilu expressed her satisfaction and confidence in these products to an audience eager for news of how their county will foster manufacturing capacity as well. She went forth stating that at this very moment there are leather workers tirelessly working away crafting other goods such as bags or balls with belts being produced locally too.
She thus called upon all the attendees of the conference to take time and learn more about the industry while still appreciating ‘made in Kenya’ products.
“Visit our booth at the Devolution Conference and sample through our display of various Kitui products. Karibuni wadau na mcheze kama nyinyi,” said Ngilu.
At the same time, the county displayed a wide range of other enticing products such as Sugarcane Wine, Honey wine and a popular brew in the region known as ‘kaluvu’ all manufactured by Kitui Food Industries.
“Pitia booth yetu pale Devolution Conference ujichukulie mzinga,” Ngilu stated.
The conference which was virtually launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta who is currently in South Africa on a State visit was themed ‘Multi–level governance for climate action’.
The three-day event will run through Friday.
