Gatundu South Moses Kuria has shown a rare admiration as and appreciation of AU High Representative for Infrastructure Raila Odinga. In a tweet last evening, the MP expressed how much he was impressed by the speech and was looking for a copy from Kenyan media houses.

Raila who was among the keynote speakers at yesterday’s event at KICC, during the launch of National Export Strategy gave a detailed description of trade among African countries. In his speech, he highlighted the importance of infrastructure and good roads in connecting African countries to trade with each other.

In his speech, Raila expressed concerns  about Kenya’s energy sector, saying it was hampering investment. He urged the Government to bring the cost of generating energy down.He noted that value addition on minerals and other commodities could not be done with high power costs.

“To do value addition you need a lot of power. Energy costs currently are too high. When the cost stands at 16 cents per unit, you cannot compete effectively internationally. You cannot compete with someone who pays 3 cents for power,” said Raila.

He  also pointed out the bureaucracy in the energy sector, saying it was chasing away private investors who wanted to generate power.
