Tea, Coffee Farmers Hail Munya’s Sector Reforms

From: the-star.co.ke

Coffee and tea farmers in Meru have hailed Agriculture CS Peter Munya’s reforms aimed at transforming the sector.

The farmers warned directors of the Kenya Tea Development Agency opposed to the reforms to stop playing politics with the vital sector. They gathered at Shabaha Stadium, Kionyo and Kariene Primary School in South Imenti and Central Imenti constituencies.

Genson Mbaabu praised Munya for being bold and fighting cartels who have misused and deprived farmers of their hard-earned money. He said it was the first time he suffered losses since he started growing coffee and tea.

Mugambi Nkanata, Kusto secretary general, told the CS not to tire, fear or be intimidated by few individuals moving to court to derail implementation of the reforms.
