2023 Devolution Conference in Uasin Gishu County

KCB has committed to supporting county governments in their pursuit to achieve inclusive growth. Speaking during the ongoing 2023 Devolution Conference in Uasin Gishu County, KCB Group CEO, Paul Russo noted that after 10 years of embracing devolution, the time is now for the devolved units to enhance structures that will guarantee citizens high quality of life.

"Our experience of banking with more than 75% of the counties across the country has shown us that walking alone only enables you to go fast, but together we can go far. It is therefore imperative for county governments to embrace structured partnerships that create long-lasting value."

Additionally, he reiterated that through collaboration, counties have an opportunity to deliver vital services derived from best practices, shared knowledge, and innovative solutions tapped by engaging platforms like regional economic blocs, and exploring co-location services.

"KCB commits to continue working closely with counties by offering the necessary support to position them as models of economic transformation in Africa. We believe that there is far more that unites us than divides us and our ability to deliver to you is exhibited through the strength of our common achievements as partners."

KCB was the platinum sponsor of the 5 days conference that had also had NBK as a key sponsor.
