Kenya: Govt Signs Deal With Canada for BVR Kits (All Africa)
The government yesterday signed a loan agreement with its Canadian counterpart for the Biometric Voter Registration kits. Justice minister Eugene Wamalwa confirmed that the Cabinet sub-committee yesterday met the Canadians to sign the memorandum of understanding.
The committee has been negotiating with the Canadians over the Sh4.6 billion deal.
The loan carries no interest but the Canadians get to pick the biometric voter registration (BVR) kit vendor.
