9 November 2016 – The APRM Country Review Team (CRT) is in its last week of the review mission to Kenya where it met various stakeholders in all the 47 counties. On Tuesday the 8th of November, the CRT met top government officials from all ministries and heads of independent commissions to validate the self-assessment report and clarify some findings obtained on the ground during interactions with county stakeholders.
APRM CRT has held successful meetings with the Governor of Central Bank and key players of the private sector in Kenya. Those in attendance included Dr James Mwangi, Managing Director and CEO of Equity Group Holdings Limited- the banking conglomerate with a strong presence in the East African community countries- who is also the Chairman of Kenya Vision 2030. He explained to the CRT the various roles the private sector in Kenya is playing as dynamic economic actors in spearheading economic growth and Vision 2030, but also in contributing to society through various programs of corporate social responsibility.
