Folks from KISII and NYAMIRA counties,listen: Don’t be cheated into sugarcane farming! I have keenly followed the debate intended towards creation of some Nyangweta Sugar Factory. Ironically, the person pushing for such is a young man I respect alot, Hon.Sylvanus Osoro.

what an old man can see while lying prostrate on the base of Lambwe valley, a boy can barely see while standing on a stool at the tip of Mount Everest!

A fool is one who sees a lion running from the bush and he runs to the bush to confirm what the lion is fleeing from… We in Western are fleeing from sugarcane farming. Reason? Cheap sugar from neighbouring countries, COMESA sugar battles and so on.

With your medium sized farms, you feed us well! We buy the best bananas from you.We get the sweetest avocados from you and we get some of the finest pineapples from you! Do not be hoodwinked into the scam called cane farming…If you doubt me, simply look at our dying MUMIAS SUGAR. what an old man can see while lying prostrate on the base of Lambwe valley, a boy can barely see while standing on a stool at the tip of Mount Everest!
