“Denmark views devolution as key to enhancing equitable development for the people of Kenya. Makueni County has demonstrated notable achievements in realising the great promise of devolution,” she said, adding: “We are supportive of the governor’s approach. For instance, the new Mother and Child hospital constructed with limited resources should be emulated by others.”
The new hospital recently launched by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta was put up at a cost of Sh135 million. There was no external funding. Ms Knudsen said Denmark would support primary healthcare in counties.
Prof Kibwana said: "The diplomats are our development partners and are happy that we have utilised funds... We are working closely with foreign countries to improve lives of our people."
