    France has accepted to help Kenya develop its nuclear potential, Prime Minister Raila Odinga has said.

    Mr Odinga, who jetted back in the country on Monday night, said world leaders had pledged to support the government’s efforts to harness nuclear energy.

    He announced that the country may soon install the first ever nuclear plant to bridge the local energy deficit after the French government consented to a proposal to jointly develop a facility in Kenya.

    “We have opened talks with the French to establish a nuclear energy reactor in the country as we also pursue expansion of green energy production to facilitate industrial development” he said.
