President Uhuru Kenyatta today launched the Last Mile Connectivity Project in Kiambu County. The programme seeks to connect more people onto the national power grip under a subsidized arrangement where households pay only Ksh15,000 for connection. (See more photos below)

The President toured Ndigu-ini village in Ndeiya to inspect the implementation of the project and visited homes that have just been supplied with electricity. He surprised one family by entering their semi-permanent house house and even sat on their old sofa, holding the youngest girl in the family.
