Maize farmers owed Sh5bn ask Uhuru to intervene

Maize growers in the Rift Valley have been frustrated by the national grains agency which owes them Sh5 billion for produce delivered since December.

They have asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to help. The Treasury has released only Sh1 billion to clear part of the debt.

"We have been promised the money will be paid but it has taken too long and we now urge the President to intervene," farmer Thomas Korgoren said.

The farmers made their plea yesterday in Eldoret where they met Uasin Gishu Senator Margaret Kamar and Moiben MP Sila Tiren.
