The county government of Nandi, under the leadership of H. E Hon. Stephen Sang, seeks to provide an investor-friendly environment and incentives for Kenyans living abroad to invest back home.

Industrialization and Enterprise Development

NANDI GEARS UP FOR INDUSTRIAL INVESTMENT AND ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT

Since the advent of devolution and the transformation agenda envisaged by H.E Governor Stephen Sang’s manifesto, Nandi County has made several initiatives towards the development and growth of the industrial and enterprise development sector. The chief mandate of the Industrialization sub sector is to create an environment that is conducive for industries to thrive thereby transforming our society both socially and economically to an industrial state. This is through creation of friendly policies, availing of support services and infrastructure as well as regulating the sector properly.

To achieve these goals, for the next five to ten years, we are aligning ourselves with the Central Government’s big four agenda where manufacturing is one of the pillars. We are focusing on manufacturing through Agro-processing, value addition, and developing & supporting cottage industries. We are also encouraging both public and private sector led investment in setting up of coffee processing plants, a milk processing factory, a leather processing unit, a maize milling and animal feeds plant.

By the end of this calendar year, we will have a fully functioning textile and apparel unit established at Kapsabet town. This will be able to train more than 100 youth annually on tailoring, embroidery, design and pattern making. After training, most will be supported to set up their own enterprises and be supplied by the factory. This will create thousands of indirect jobs while earning the county revenue. The subsector is working on a policy that will culminate in the creation of a County Enterprise fund which will be available for youth and women engaging in cottage industry businesses, small and medium sized enterprises, and boda boda businesses. Once operational, the county will pump in more than 20 million Kenya Shillings annually, both from its own resources as well those of development partners like the Kenya Industrial Estates, while a portion of the monthly sticker and license fees paid by the target traders will also be channeled into the revolving fund and be lent to them on very little interest rates. This will enable them grow their capacities and in the process create more jobs. They will receive training and attend capacity building clinics to ensure that proper business management skills are imparted in them.

Public participation was conducted at Kibigong market in Chemelil/Chemase ward on 2nd May 2018 where the locals were taken through the importance and the legal requirements on the establishment of the Special Economic zone on a 200 acre farm in the area. The Export Processing Zone (EPZ) which is on course will create employment opportunities to thousands of residents in Nandi, increase the economy of the county and promote trade through value addition.

Nandi County is richly endowed with immense opportunities for industrial development as follows;-

1. Textiles and apparels;-

The textiles and apparels sector has been identified as a priority sector by the county Government of Nandi. Its prominence in the manufacturing pillar under the ‘Big Four’ agenda and the Kenya Industrial Transformation Programme is a manifestation of its importance to the county Government of Nandi in income generation.

Textile, Garment and apparel manufacturing has a very high potential in the county. A particularly attractive investment is nucleus textile plants producing quality fabric and utilizing small garment makers to produce for export.

2. Leather and leather products

The hides and skins currently produced in the county are exported to Eldoret and Kisumu for further processing. Most hides and skins are processed up to the wet blue stage for export while investment opportunities exist in production of finished leather, offering potential for the manufacture of shoes and other leather products such as wallets, briefcases, bible covers, ciondos, handbags, cushions, key holders, sandals, watch straps and traveling bags. Leather work products have certain components that could be subcontracted such as fixing buttons and buckles, making insoles and soles for shoes, installation of lining especially in bags and briefcases.

1.3. Milk processing plant.

This plant will have a processing capacity of 200,000 litres per day. To support it there will be at least two cooling plants per ward. We already have 319,950 dairy cattle producing 142 million litres valued approximately kshs.4.2 Billion per year.

 

4. Brick and tile –making;

The requirement for this project is dependable source of suitable clay which is available in the county. This type of project can either be small scale using locally made and hand operated tools to a large scale one which is mechanized. Many large construction companies would buy bricks in bulk and local contractors and individuals could also be interested.

5. Canned food plant

The county produces horticultural crops such as tomatoes, citrus, brassicas and onions. These crops would be better marketed with an added value if they are canned.

6. Animal feeds plant.

The county is in dire need of an animal feeds plant to satisfy the Local demand of livestock industry. Animal feeds have to be obtained from Eldoret at the moment and not many livestock farmers are able to obtain them due to the distance and high prices involved.

7. Cane sugar factory.

The county’s sugar cane production has been increasing over the years (from year to year) to the current 500,000 Bags. Acreage has increased from 6,000 hectares in 2010 to 9500 hectares in 2016.

An annual growth rate in hectarage is anticipated to rise upto 15,000 hectares by the year 2022.This increased production calls for a factory within the county to process the cane into sugar.

8. Honey refinery.

All the honey produced in Nandi is sold out of the county. There is therefore a need for a refinery within the county to help increase the added value from honey processing as well as create employment to the Local people. This project will reduce exploitation of farmers by middlemen.

9. Farm implements

There is potential in the county for producing implements required on farms since the majority of the people derive their livelihood from crop and livestock husbandry. Examples of such implements that would be produced are hoes, wires and milking equipment.

10. Basic consumer goods and household equipment

Since the income of the population is rapidly growing from the sale of milk and agricultural products there are prospects for the manufacture of basic consumer goods and household equipment. Items like furniture, metal utensils and plastic products would get a good market within the county and beyond.

11. Technology/Business incubation programmes

Establishment of Nandi County Incubation Centers will be keen to facilitate product innovation and development through technological parks and export oriented incubation centers in partnership with other institutions. Science techno parks and incubators will provide opportunities for upcoming entrepreneurs and investors to develop their innovations to marketable products. Research and development can be conducted as a licensed service activity.

The NIICs will form strategic partnerships with the business community, universities and specialized research institutions to catalyze the development of local technology, product innovation and marketing.

The techno parks will act as centers where the business community can obtain new products, undergo improvement stages and commercialize them through research at the parks.

Increased agricultural incomes along with renewed emphasis on development of industries which utilize local resources will create increasing opportunities for micro, small and medium industries (MSMIs).

Investment decisions are best made on the basis of an objective assessment of the costs and benefits of doing business. Several factors go into making business viable. These include the economies of scale, market availability, comparative prices, marketing strategies, availability of raw materials, appropriate technology, proper packaging and use of appropriate labour. Generally the higher the risk the attainable profits.

I am pleased, honoured and humbled to serve as Chief Officer in the County Department of Tourism, Culture and Social Welfare; Social Welfare section. In discharge of my responsibilities as a Chief Officer mandated to champion strategies aimed at economically and socially developing a section of members of the community facing challenges, I am inspired by the Holy Bible in the Gospel according to St. Mathew chapter 25:35-41 which holds me accountable to the Lord for the service I offer to the people of Nandi. I don’t take it for granted that H.E the Governor found me fit and capable of contributing to the Tuga-Tai transformative agenda and pledge to do everything within my powers to achieve this dream.

Social Welfare section is part of the wider Department of Tourism, Culture and Social Welfare that was officially re-aligned by His Excellency the Governor of the County Government of Nandi after his inauguration in 2017. The section primarily seeks to initiate and implement sustainable interventions that create a platform for social equality and equity in the distribution of resource and access to opportunities. It is also integral in strengthening social protection and provision of recognizable social needs especially to vulnerable members of the community such as women, children, the marginalized, senior citizens and Persons with Disabilities. Apart from championing several interventions that promote community development, one of its core mandate is to enhance better livelihood for the above category of residents as highlighted here below;

  1. Children– Orphans and vulnerable children, child headed families, child labour and extreme destitution is among the children issues covered under specific mandate that social welfare section seeks to address. Social welfare is cognizant of the innumerable challenges that children suffer including but not limited to malnutrition, sexual assault, forced labour, stigmatization and retrogressive cultural practices. It therefore seeks to promote provision of a safe environment for the children to thrive.
  2. Women- Societal expectation and distinct gender roles have placed women into a state of inherent disparity that unfortunately dictate their level of individual development and access to resources and opportunities. Social welfare seeks to elevate the role of women in development through capacity building, advocacy, sensitization and initiating intervention that provides women’s ability to access factors of economic growth.
  3. Vulnerable Senior Citizens– Decline of kinship ties, infiltration of western lifestyle and financial pressures and other extraneous variables has resulted into a significant paradigm shift in the family system for care and support to the elderly individuals.

Many elderly people are susceptible to poverty, negligence from prospective care givers, poor nutrition and healthcare.  Social welfare seeks to identify and profile all vulnerable elderly persons throughout the County, offer psycho-social support and coordinate medical assistance to them.

  1. PWD’s– Promotion and inclusion of PWD in all spheres of development by the social welfare section cannot be gainsaid. Some of the outstanding achievements include the acquisition of PWD’s assistive devices through the National Council for PWD. The department is currently planning to undertake a comprehensive survey and profiling of all PWDs to determine their number, type of disability, registration with National Council for PWD and the type of assistance required to empower them. An updated centralized Information Management data bank kept in a retrieval system will track assistance and help in sourcing and planning all interventions by different stakeholders and donors.

Following a series of mud-slide disasters that affected several villages especially in Tindiret Sub-County from Mid april, H.E the Governor made a Disaster Declaration on Sunday 21st April 2018 that mandated this Department to spearhead intervention geared towards saving lives and ensuring provision of basic amenities to affected individuals most of whom temporarily resided in established camps at Cherondo Primary school and Kapchanga Primary School. In liaison with Kenya Red Cross Society, Social welfare section carried out rapid household assessments and coordinated supply of food and non-food items to affected individuals.

At the end of my tour of duty, I am optimistic that with God’s help, Social Welfare will have achieved the following:

  • Establish a rescue centre in Kapsabet town
  • Establish a child friendly breastfeeding facility in all urban centres
  • Lobby for increased women development fund and coordinate uptake of such credit by women
  • Support establishment of quotas for women and PWD’ on recruitment in the Government.
  • Encourage establishment of agricultural production and cottage industries.
  • Construct a rehabilitation centre
  • Establish a County Social Fund for the elderly and coordinate disbursement
  • Partner with CBO’ and NGO’s that support community development programs
  • Lobby for Increase in the number of children homes
  • Rehabilitate street children
  • Ring fence bursary allocation to OVC’s and PWD’s
  • Create awareness on child rights
  • Support dysfunctional families
  • Collect and profile data on challenged members of the society
  • Assist PWD’s obtain assistive devices
  • Establish formidable affirmative action on the placement of the disabled people in strategic decision making positions.
  • Collaborate with National Council for persons with disability( NCPWD)
  • Ensure that disability mainstreaming is done
  • Implement policies and programs on Social Protection.
  • Lobby for regulation of liquor licencing, gambling, betting and other time wasting practices.
  • Combat HIV/AID’s through advocacy, sensitisation in partnership with relevant departments.
  • Place and follow up on children in foster care services.
