The principal, College of Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences, Prof. Kiama Gitahi on Monday, 11th Sept 2017 hosted Chinese Ambassador to Kenya Liu Xianfa and Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Natural Resources, Prof.Judi Wakhungu, during the handover of the Automatic Weather Station aided by the Chinese Government.

This Automatic Weather Station is an upgraded version of the traditional station and is equipped with sensors capable of measuring wind speed and direction, humidity, radiation and rainfall amount.

Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Natural Resources, Prof.Judi Wakhungu, said at the handover ceremony that the device will improve Kenya's capacity to predict and report weather patterns on real time basis.

Chinese Ambassador to Kenya Liu Xianfa attended the handover ceremony Prof.Wakhungu noted the station can be deployed even in remote areas and operates round the clock since it gets power from the sun and has an internal rechargeable battery that serves as a backup.

On his part, Liu said donation of the automated weather monitoring device is in line with Beijing's goal to strengthen cooperation with Nairobi in the field of environment.
