The visit comes as a follow up on the partnership on solid waste management in Uasin Gishu with an objective of learning and implementing best practices in Norrkoping.
The Norkopping leadership was impressed by the success the partnership has achieved and Uasin Gishu Project has been reported to be a success.
The team noted the fact that the two parties presented the same progress reports. It was hinted that the project was likely to be extended for another two years to allow the county to meet the pending objective.
