President Uhuru Finally Remembers Sugarcane Farmers.

It is now a spring of joy for sugarcane farmers in Western Kenya after president Uhuru Kenyatta directed that KSH 1.5B to cushion them from adverse financial conditions.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, source files.

It has been a plea of leaders in the sugar belt that the president remembers them on his financial support programs.

The biggest beneficiaries of this program will be the farmers of Nzoia Sugar Company who have gone for two years without receiving their dues.

The embattled farmers will now have a chance to get a reward for their hard work and this will rejuvenate their hope.

The lack of money in the sugar Sector has posed tremendous injuries to the cane farmers with some even failing to cater for fees for their children.

Other embattled sugar companies include, Muhoroni, Chemilil and Mumias which totally collapsed.

Part of the money will be used for major maintenance of the sugar processing firms.
