Kenya has been regarded as the region's economic powerhouse with its influence growing each and every day. Kenya's economy has been on the rise with an increase in the level of innovations and technology giving it an upper edge against its peers.
Led by President Uhuru Kenyatta, Kenya has been making strides especially in investing in technology for the fight of diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis, polio among others. This is in the efforts of Kenya trying to reduce overreliance on foreign countries even in the basic things that we can manage to do.
Today President Uhuru Kenyatta has made another mark in the region and Africa at large when he presided over the unveiling of the first locally manufactured malaria rapid diagnostic kit at the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme in Kilifi County.
This new innovation will help the country in its fight of having a zero malaria country. Kenyans from all divides have since sent their congratulatory messages to the head of state for being at the forefront to ensure that Kenya is secure from malaria and other diseases through the innovation of machines that can aid in this fight.
Below are some of the messages:
Nijoh Johnson, 'Good job Mr President. These are the strives I love to hear. We can also try the other vaccines. Way to go.'
Elphas Ndenga, 'This is the news I want to read.'
