“We said we must decongest these places and clean them up. We stopped the two major centers of coronavirus reproduction and stopped this virus,” the governor said.

“Diasporans have been sending money to Kenya individually. I think both the National and County Govts have failed diasporans. County governments can work with some of the banks and see if they can partner with diasporans to send money for investment,” the Governor said.

He also challenged Kenyans abroad to come up with ideas on which they can partner with counties.

“How do diasporans want county governments to help them as much as enabling an environment for them to invest at home,” Anyang Nyong’o said.

The Governor also challenged media houses like KDRTV to market Kenyan county governments in the diaspora.
