In Summary

  • President William Ruto says, "we will manufacture affordable fertiliser to boost food production."

Kenya has entered into an agreement with a multinational firm to fast-track the development of affordable green fertiliser.

Under the pact, Fortescue Future Industries and the Government of Kenya will work together to build a 300MW capacity generation green ammonia and green fertiliser facility by 2025.
