Nakuru: Friday, July 6, 2012
The ambitious journey towards setting up a multi-complex geothermal facility in Africa started in earnest last week when over 8,000 tree seedlings were planted at the Kabarak farm.
Rongai MP Hon. Luka Kigen, GDC chairman Mr. Paul E. Gondi, board members, MD/CEO Dr. Silas Simiyu, chief managers, managers and staff thronged the 100-acre Kabarak farm where GDC intends to establish a state-of-the-art Geothermal Training Institute (GTI).
Speakers at the event lauded the effort by GDC and promised to mobilize resources and support needed in establishing the institute. Hon. Kigen promised to mobilize area residents to take care of the trees adding that “we are eagerly waiting for GDC to set base here.”
“I want to thank you for what you have done today,” the legislator said. He added that the area where the complex will be located, is sitting in the constituency which will be center of power for the Nakuru metropolis.
He also said that MPs will initiate a legislation which will push for establishment of Corporate Social Responsibility programmes in key areas where power is generated.
