Monica Juma, Cabinet Secretary at the Ministry of Defence, stated that robust business process systems have been put in place to meet the needs of livestock farmers and the general public.

In an effort to revitalize the parastatal, KMC was transferred to the Ministry of Defence in September 2020.

“Over the last few months, we have renovated this strategic installation and established robust business process systems to meet the needs of livestock farmers and the general public. “We knew from the start that the KMC takeover and revamp would be no ordinary task,” CS Juma said on Friday.

According to CS Juma, the strategic direction to the Ministry of Defence was to revamp operations and production with the goal of ensuring the Commission's survival and profit.

President Uhuru Kenyatta will attend the event.

“We also knew from the beginning that there was no room for error. “All officers assigned to this task worked around the clock, drawing on best practices in the industry beyond our borders, responding to the needs of stakeholders such as paying outstanding debts and implementing proactive components of income generation with the end goal in mind – Kenyans and livestock farmers,” she said.

"I can now confirm that the facility has been revamped, the systems have been tested, and it is ready to contribute to national food security and generate revenue for the exchequer," the CS added.

The President is also expected to inaugurate the 127-kilometer Nakuru-Kisumu railway line.

The railway line will provide continuous transportation from Mombasa to Kisumu.
