Kakamega Senator, Cleophas Malala has come out clear on his critics over the division in Mumias Sugar Company revival. The company collapsed some years ago due to mismanagement and corruption among stakeholders. Farmers have been on a public outcry to see the company working again, but nothing is yet to happen.
During an exclusive interview with Nyota TV, the law maker accused various leaders in Luhya Nation for being hypocrites. According to his statements, some leaders from the region are out with ill motives to stop public scrutiny on the revival and benefit themselves. Malala vowed to pull up his efforts and ensure public participation is done before the company is leased to anyone.
"Negotiations between DEVKI investor and the Mumias Sugar Company stakeholders should be done before the take over process if any fairness is to be achieved." The legislator stated.
DEVKI, an Indian-based company was awarded the tender to revive this giant sugar company in Kakamega county. However, the investor withdrew from the tender leaving locals with questions to answer. The row has seen charged residents holding demonstrations against Malala.
