  • Description

    THE KENYAN GOVERNMENT IS SOON TO EMBARK ON A REGIONAL CATTLE RANCHING PROJECT THAT WILL ENCOMPASS KENYA, SOMALIA AND ETHIOPIA. THE PROPOSED SCHEME WAS ANNOUNCED RECENTLY BY THE KENYAN AGRICULTURE MINISTER, MR. BRUCE MCKENZIE, ON A RECENT TOUR OF THE COUNTRY'S NORTH EASTERN PROVINCE.

    MR. MCKENZIE ANNOUNCED THE SCHEME TO VISITING NEWSMEN DURING A RECENT PRESS TOUR OF THE PROVINCE. PURPOSE OF THE TOUR WAS TO SHOW THE PRESSMEN THAT THE REGION HAD NOW SETTLED DOWN TO A PERIOD OF STEADY DEVELOPMENT AFTER YEARS OF TROUBLE ARISING OUT OF THE BORDER DISPUTE WITH SOMALIA.

    AT MUDOGASHE, THE PROVINCIAL COMMISSIONER, MR. J.B.MBURU, OFFICIALLY OPENED A NEW GBP5,000 HEALTH CENTRE. HALF OF THE MONEY WAS PROVIDED BY THE GOVERNMENT AND THE OTHER HALF WAS RAISED BY THE LOCAL PEOPLE.

    WHEREVER THE PARTY WENT IT WAS GREETED BY CHEERING, SINGING AND DANCING CROWDS, SOME OF WHOM WAVED WELCOMING PLACARDS.

    ONE OF THE MAJOR PROBLEMS FACING THE REGION IS THE SHORTAGE OF WATER. AT FORT ELWAK THE PARTY MET UP WITH THE AGRICULTURE MINISTER WHO TOLD THEM BRITISH ARMY ENGINEERS HAD JUST STRUCK WATER SOME FIFTY MILES AWAY.
