Sub-Committee Meeting on the Revitalization of the APRM Process at Crown Plaza.
Kenya will be the first country out of the 35 member states, to submit to a second review. This underscores our commitment to good governance and the willingness to be scrutinized on agreed-upon commitments. Kenya’s first review was conducted in 2006 and it among other things informed our constitutional review process.
The APRM process has five stages and currently, Kenya is on the 2nd Stage whereby the Country Review Team (CRT) will visit the country to validate the Self-Assessment Report. The CRT is comprised of Panel of Eminent Persons, Thematic Consultants, and Staff from the APR Secretariat. The mission will hold countrywide consultations with Government officials, women representatives, The Youth, Academia, Faith Based Organizations, County Assembly Speakers, Civil Society Organizations, Media, People with disabilities, Chambers of Commerce amongst other
The 25th Summit of the Heads of State and Government Participating in the African Peer Review Mechanism [APR Forum] was held on 26 August 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya. H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta, President of the Republic of Kenya, Chairperson of the APR Forum, presided over the Summit.
In his remarks H.E Kenyatta said the presence of his peers at the Forum is proof of their commitment to the cause of improving Africa’s governance, and to the hunger that Africans feel for a leadership that truly represents their interests and their hopes.
"This generation of leaders must rise to that challenge of leadership in the continent. We must show ourselves worthy of the responsibilities that our people have chosen us to undertake” he urged his peers.
President Uhuru further paid tribute to APRM CEO, Professor Eddy Maloka for the substantial progress he has achieved in revitalizing the mechanism.
The upgrading to bitumen standards of the 192 kilometre road which runs from Kibwezi through Ikutha, Mutomo, Kitui town, Kabati to Migwani will cost Ksh 18.4 billion.
Speaking after the launch at Mutomo township in Kitui County, President Kenyatta said upgrading of the road fulfils one of the Jubilee Government’s social economic goals for the region.
The projects – which include roads and health – are part of the Ksh 144 billion in development that the Jubilee Administration has invested in the Lower Eastern region.
President Kenyatta will start at Sultan Hamud in Makueni County where he will launch tarmacking of the Ksh 1.2 billion Sultan Hamud Junction–Kasikeu–Wautu–Kyambeke–Kikoko road and address residents. Thereafter, the President will proceed to Mbooni where he will inspect the construction works of the Mbooni Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) before interacting with leaders and residents to share views on development.
