President Uhuru Kenyatta has commended Kenya’s Equity Bank for its growing continental presence saying the financial institution’s expansion is helping unite Africa and expand her economic freedom.
“Today, the Republic of Kenya and the Democratic Republic of Congo forge a stronger bond through the merger of Banque Commerciale du Congo (BCDC) and Equity Bank Congo (EBC).
“It is a moment of rare regional and continental pride, as we witness our local enterprises coming together in the spirit of One Africa, One People,” President Kenyatta said.
The Head of State spoke Wednesday in DR Congo when he presided over the official inauguration of the rebranded Equity BCDC office block in Central Kinshasa.
“Our forefathers fought to secure not only political freedom, but also economic freedom. The political freedom is secure; economic liberation is the task of our time,” President Kenyatta said.
