Former Sports Minister, Rashid Echesa, was speaking at a local radio station yesterday night, 'Nyota fm', and happened to spill the beans concerning who is actually harming and destroying the light of Western Kenya, the popular company, Mumias Sugar.
According to him, western leaders have fallen prey to West Kenya sugar Company managing director and owner of half the sugar industries in Kenya, Tajveer Rai, by receiving peanuts from him, to ensure the once renowned company does not get a credible investor hence ensuring no light of day for the famous entity.
He respectfully said, "Senator Malala should stop running here and there claiming to have an investor, yet he and others are speaking on behalf of Rai, to damage the industry more by their claimed investor."
"We want a credible investor who will fight for the farmers interests and needs and who will ensure there is constant 'smoke' in Mumias. We do not want misfortunes like the one that struck pan paper industry by being lied over and taken by Rai, to happen to our beloved industry."
He claimed there is need for western leaders to voice with authority and bravity to government, about the grave concerns relating to various industries that have failed, so as to have a conversation about revival plans.
"Instead of wasting time talking about which road to be named after Atwoli, it's time to reflect on our ailing region and have a proper honest discussion on how to get our industries from their knees."
Echesa says, there are many credible and focused investors like DEVKI, only that, they fear the current politics surrounding the company.
In my opinion, I know for efficient and effective smooth running of any organization, there is always need to have progressive and transparent politics so as to know various issues that can be addressed before they turn grey.
