On December 7, 2004 at the Chinese embassy in Nairobi, China donated 5 computers and 5 printers to the Kenya Union of Journalists (KUJ). Guo Chongli, the Chinese ambassador to Kenya, handed over the donation to Ezekiel Mutua, the KUJ Secretary-General. The amount is unknown. 'I hope that the batch of equipment will help in its information technological capacity building and bring more efficiency and convenience to the union's work,' said Guo Chongli, ambassador of the People's Republic of China to Kenya. Guo said in the handover ceremony that China-Kenya cooperation in the field of journalism has scored remarkable achievement during the past decades. As early as the 1990s, the KUJ and All China Journalists Association (ACJA) signed a memorandum of understanding on cooperation. Since then, the two sides have conducted frequent exchanges of visits. 'I believe that the exchanges of visits between the ACJA and the KUJ will make unique contribution to the deepening of mutual understanding and friendship between Chinese and Kenyan peoples,' Guo said. KUJ Secretary-General Ezekiel Mutua thanked Guo for the donation, saying, 'We appreciate the assistance very much. We hope this friendly cooperation between us will continue.' The donation includes five computers and five printers.'
