By: Timothy Kariuki

Embu governor Martin Wambora has announced the discovery of copper at two sites in Mbeere. Mr Wambora said that the minerals have been discovered in Evurore ward of Mbeere North and another site in Mbeere south. Speaking after a meeting with the business community at the Kenya School of Government in Embu, Mr Wambora said the county government has involved geologists from the Ministry of Mining to establish the volume. He said the geologists will establish the extent of the minerals before the county government embarks on exploitation together with investors. The investors, led by the region’s Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry chairman Samuel Kanyi, asked the government to start exploitation. Mr Wambora also announced that the county will hold an international investors conference from March 23, focusing on value addition, energy, investment, ICT, tourism and financial services. He said the county plans to set up a micro finance bank. Mr Kanyi challenged local investors to come up with mechanisms of adding value to farm produce especially mangoes, avocado, cassava and honey.
