Sweden has agreed to walk with Kajiado county to produce electricity and gas from waste in major towns.

Umea City Mayor Margaretta Ronngaren and Kajiado Deputy governor Martine Moshisho on February 17 in her office.

Through the International Centre for Local Democracy (ICDL), the Scandinavian country is targeting total recycling of solid and liquid waste from the county’s urban centres.

Among those targeted are Rongai, Kiserian, Kitengela and Ngong in addition to the waste from Machakos and Nairobi counties.

ICDL will implement the new project through Umea City’s international project on solid and waste water management.

Kajiado deputy governor Martin Moshisho and Umea City’s mayor Margaretta Ronngaren signed the deal in Sweden last week.

“The partnership will run into millions of shillings. We have now started to craft a master plan that will guide the exact amount of funds to be availed to Kajiado County. It will definitely be more than Sh300 million from our preliminary talks,” said Moshisho.

Moshisho said the project had suffered a lull last year due to political uncertainty.

“We are now back on track with the new confirmation on funding from Sweden,” he said.

Umea City’s Head of International Affairs, Cathrin Alenskar confirmed the targeted waste would be from the rapidly growing towns.

“We shall start by training stakeholders on the best practices and how to make a fortune from waste. In Sweden, we actually import waste from neighbouring counties. We want Kajiado to be able to welcome waste from neighbouring counties and make money out of it, “said Alenskar when Moshisho met her in Sweden.

To further reap from the new partnership, Moshisho announced Kajiado would join Symbiocities, another international programme that helps counties in Kenya develop sustainable projects to address various challenges.
