On 6th February we were privileged to host the newly appointed French Ambassador to Kenya His Excellency Remi MARECHAUX at Ruben Centre. French Embassy in Kenya has supported some capital developments at the Centre through the French development fund. The Ambassador had come to see the projects the embassy has funded which include the Jungu Kuu- meaning a big pot- this is a meeting area that is strategically located at the entrance of the main gate, the playground, marketing office and some books at the library.

The ambassador graced the event by signing off his name at the Jungu Kuu meeting area as a symbol of commemoration of his presence and visit at Ruben Centre. He was nonetheless amazed at the work the Centre is doing and commended the Director and the entire staff body for a job well done. The ambassador also gave out some rugby balls for the children to play with.

Mr MARECHAUX was accompanied by The Head of Cooperation and Cultural Affairs Department- Jeremie BLIN and Humanitarian Affairs and Programme Officer Emilie COMPIGNIE

Then I was suddenly aware of the poor state I was in, if I had retreated that far from the mob that is often pressing around with an endless litany of needs to be addressed. What else am I here for? Get over yourself Frank.
