He urged the host communities to continue to join hands with KRPC so that “together we shall to reap the fruits our neighbourly cooperation”. Saying KRPC Will continue to adhere to international best practices in its operations and will never do anything that will harm its neighbours. 

“The sight of pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers as well as babies and children from surrounding communities here this morning has made nonsense of their spurious claims that our operations causes infertility in our host communities”.
“Today we are kick starting a vaccination programme against such deadly diseases as measles, whooping cough, hepatitis,  pneumonia,  tetanus,  diphtheria,  haemopholus and influenza type B targeted at eight thousand (8000) babies, children,  pregnant women and the de-worming of the same number of adult men and women as well as children.” 
“It could be recalled that in 2013 we carried out the same vaccination programme against cerebrospinal meningitis at which time we succeeded in vaccinating over six thousand (6000) people in our host communities.  Thus exercise is an expansion of that effort in 2013 and I want to assure our host communities that they will continue to enjoy a priority place in all our activities.” Mohammed explains.
