Netherlands Ambassador To Kenya Pays Governor Ntutu A Courtesy Call

The Netherlands Ambassador to Kenya, His Excellency Maarten Brouwer accompanied by a prominent delegation, has today paid a courtesy visit to Governor Patrick Ole Ntutu at his office. The deliberations centered on key sectors of Agriculture and Environment, with a particular focus on the collaborative initiatives between the Netherlands-affiliated NGO, SNV, Narok County Government and the Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organization (KALRO) in Narok County.

The delegation examined the initiatives spearheaded by SNV, operating under the patronage of the Netherlands Embassy, aimed at advancing agricultural practices and environmental preservation in the county. Through strategic partnerships with Narok County and KALRO, SNV is committed to introducing contemporary interventions in agriculture, notably in livestock farming and environmental conservation, with the objective of enhancing the income of farmers and catalyzing transformative changes in their livelihoods, all while advocating for the sustainable management of natural resources.

Following the meeting, Governor Ntutu stated, ” I have formally solicited the extension of our Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with SNV, a matter duly addressed by the SNV Global Managing Director, Adre De Jager. I am pleased to announce that, through the auspices of the Country Director, Jean Kootstra, our MOU, initially ratified in 2022, will indeed be renewed.”

The Governor recognized  the pivotal role that such partnerships play in advancing the development agenda of the county.
