Nairobi,20th February 2003,
Here is the paragraphs on the expected development of North Eastern Province of Kenya from the opening speech of President Mwai Kibaki to the Ninth Parliament yesterday :-
It is important to declare the considerable emphasis my government shall be placing to development in North Eastern Province and other districts which have been marginalised in the past. This province and other districts have been neglected by previous administrations.
We recognise the importance pastoralism plays in the national economy. We plan to address the development issues of these areas directly. Security, health, water, communication and education are top on the list of priorities that my government plans to address.
