Africaqua CEO, Mr. David Kuria was the Chief Guest at the 2015 annual Professorial Luncheon held at the JKUAT Main Campus, Juja on Tuesday, 28th July 2015. The Professorial Luncheon is an annual event hosted in honour of the newly promoted university professors at the JKUAT Main Campus.
As the Chief Speaker at the event, Mr. David Kuria spoke on Entrepreneurship and the role of the Professorial club in Enhancing Entrepreneurship and Policy Making in Kenya. He spoke on the importance of Entrepreneurship in disrupting the current systems, which will pave way for new innovative solutions to societal issues. In His speech, Mr. David Kuria gave the example of the Kenya Legislature, which does not allow private distribution of water. Distribution of water in Kenya is left to Municipal Council Water Bodies, which at the moment are overwhelmed as most communities in Kenya still lack access to basic Tap water.
He reiterated the need for all three bodies, the Professorial Body, the Legislature and the Industry to work together in order to build a favorable environment for Entrepreneurship to flourish.
