Elect leaders who are Ready to Revive Industry

Western region is a graveyard of dead in dus- tries that have nothing to do with sugar. Factories were the economic main stay of the region. Those who did not work in the sugar mills were involved in businesses in the trading centres that emerged while others planted sugarcane as contracted Out growers of the millers.

The collapse of the Kisumu cotton mills killed the vibrant textile indus try and cotton growing in most of Nyanza. Further up in Bungoma County. the celebrated Pan paper Mills went down with many livelihoods.

The despondency created by these collapses is beyond description. This is eco- nomic genocide. It is high time for western region people to elect leaders who have walked in their shoes to understand the true nature of what this industrial graveyard reresents to the residents.

We need a presidential candidate who will revive our industries to avoid factories ailing due to financial constraints. This will reduce poverty in the region. This election cycle should be the last candidates make promises to revive the industries.
