ELDORET MUNICIPALITY TO BENEFIT FROM SUED SPONSORSHIP

Eldoret Town Manager Tito Koiyet, Wednesday, signed an agreement between the Eldoret Municipality and Sustainable Urban Economic Development Program (SUED) at the offices of Uasin Gishu County Secretary.

 I wish to extend His Excellency Governor Mandago’s gratitude to Eldoret Municipality Board because their efficiency and professionalism has instilled confidence to development partners and foreign investors”, County Secretary Edwin Bett Said.

Through this agreement, Eldoret joins eleven other municipalities that will access a total of 4.5 Billion aid granted by a British government through the Department for International Development (DFID). The SUED program will be managed by Coffey limited, a British consulting organization.

The fund will be spread across five years.

This fund is mean for spurring economic development within the urban and rural areas of our municipality”, Tito Koiyet explained.

SUED program funding is divided into two with the first half covering capacity building through consultancy while the other is injected into infrastructure projects and programs aimed at creating economic stimuli.

“This program will do a great deal of good because they will offer technical assistance as we address our urban economic planning and seed grant to support infrastructure and economic value chain development “, Municipality Board Chair Julius Kitur said.

Municipalities are also set to benefit from capacity building in establishing a private sector-led urban growth and to help in implementing promotion strategies.

Other municipalities that will benefit from this fund are Iten, Isiolo, Machakos, Kathunzweni, Kerugoya/Kutus, Kathwana, Kisii, Kitui, Lamu, Malindi, and Mandera.

Also present during the signing of the agreement was County Attorney Stephen Lel.
