Can we have him as the acting Governor for Kiambu in the temporary absence of Babayanani?

I have come to respect madam Ngilu a lot.

Her initial project of Ndengu was amazing. In one year, Kitui was struggling with a surplus harvest and dwindling market.

Jubilee idiots wouldn't help her supply the same to India which was the target market.

With Kicotec and Rivatex I am seeing a possible revival of the cotton industry.

Peter Munga once offered to take over all the ginneries in 2014. The bribes demanded by the Jubilee duo made him abandon the project.

Why not just set up the ginneries from scratch, he would benefit from newer more efficient machines and processing technologies.

I have absolutely no background on this but my bet is there must have been some underlying asset he wanted to grab, e,g land

Actually, contracts were to be secured to export ndengu to India, unfortunately, India also had a bumper harvest after good rains so they slapped an import quota locking out imports

Madam eventually lobbied govt (who were purchasing imported mung beans from tenderpreneur) and so NYS min of education Magereza were told to purchase the crop all be it at a lower price.

It is unfortunate that other cereals are not given the much attention given to maize. National Cereals Board became the National Maize board

Recently, the Samburu County government procured more than 20,000 circumcision knives in efforts to fight the risks of HIV infection among young men getting circumcised.

The county’s ministry of Social Services, Gender and Culture also procured gloves and other health equipment to facilitate a hygienic exercise.

The ministry’s chief officer, Andrew Lenyasunya, says that in Samburu culture boys are circumcised en masse.

“Boys are circumcised in big numbers and, in the past, the circumcisers used only one knife. But things have changed and to avoid the spread of HIV, we have also trained circumcisers on hygiene and we have provided gloves and other sterilisers,” Lenyasunya said.

If mama chews 10% from all the deals and allows 90% for growth,I will let it pass.She has to recoup her investment and create a war chest for 2022.

Contrast that with Arror Kimwarer idiots who munch everything 100% before the projects start.

Copy and Paste Extract

Quote:
A row over who owns Kenya’s land is making life hard for foreign firms

Kericho, the capital of Kenya’s tea country, is a verdant spot.

Emerald-green estates stretch as far as the eye can see, hugging the western escarpment of the Rift Valley.

Set 7,000 feet above sea level, the climate is perfect for growing tea, Kenya’s biggest export, which fetched $1.4bn last year.

For Paul Chepkwony, the governor of Kericho County, these plantations are a reminder of the way the British stiffed his Kipsigis tribe of their land.

Under British rule the colonists took half the land on which the Kipsigis grazed their cattle, turning it into tea estates.

Mr Chepkwony demands that the British government pay compensation to 115,000 Kipsigis and their descendants, who lost their land. (It will not.)

Mr Chepkwony also says that a ruling in February by the new land commission allows him to increase land taxes on tea estates and demand a preposterous $20bn or so in profits that he claims were illegally acquired—equivalent to nearly a quarter of Kenya’s annual gdp.

The burden, he feels, should fall primarily on three firms that grow tea on disputed land: Finlays, Unilever and George Williamson.

If they cough up, they would be welcome to stay on as tenants of the Kipsigi people, he says.

To Mr Chepkwony’s irritation, the multinationals are not playing ball.

They have resisted his demands to surrender their title deeds for inspection.

They have also challenged the land commission’s ruling.

Kimutai Bosek, the governor’s legal adviser, warns that such recalcitrance could prompt frustrated Kipsigis to take the law into their own hands.

The tea companies do not take such threats lightly.

In June the governor of a neighbouring county led an invasion of an estate, uprooting tea bushes.

Historic land disputes are vexing multinationals in other sectors, too.

Kakuzi, a big British agricultural firm, and Del Monte Kenya, which grows 13,000 acres of pineapples, have faced demands to surrender large chunks of their plantations.

County governors are also using their new powers to make life difficult off the farm.

Tata Chemicals, an Indian soda-ash miner, has been slapped with a $166m land-tax bill it says it cannot pay.

Local politicians are also complicating things for Tullow, an Anglo-Irish company trying to extract oil in northern Kenya.

All this leaves Uhuru Kenyatta, Kenya’s president and Jomo’s son, in a bind.

Aside from fears that those with land grievances could one day turn to his family’s vast holdings, he presents himself as a champion of foreign investors.

Yet, preoccupied by a power struggle in his government and wary of alienating voters ahead of an election in 2022, Mr Kenyatta has remained aloof.

His silence may damage the economy.


Multinationals are not just big taxpayers but also sizeable employers.

Del Monte is Kenya’s largest exporter of canned pineapples.

Nearly two-thirds of tea processed by big firms comes from smallholders.

When landless peasants organised by the ruling party seized big commercial farms in Zimbabwe, the economy collapsed.

Some say Kenya’s land commission should look at under-utilised farms owned by politicians.

Or that Mr Kenyatta could do more good by reducing corruption, boosting urban employment and helping smallholders make their farms more productive.

Many Kenyans have legitimate land grievances, but making implausible demands of profitable firms does not seem the best way of addressing them.
