State House Issues A Statement Revealing What President Ruto Told The Ministry Of Trade To Do

President William Ruto's main goal has been to help the republic of Kenya invest in agriculture as it is one of the greatest foreign exchange earners for many African countries. Given that he is a farmer himself, Ruto knows how beneficial agriculture can be when it is properly monitored. Ruto is among the country's millionaires and most of his riches have been obtained from agricultural activities.

The president on Wednesday flagged off the first consignment of Kenyan tea which is destined for Accra Ghana. This was done at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre Nairobi. After the flagging off was over Ruto met with stakeholders from the ministry of trade and they held lengthy discussions on how best to promote trade between Kenya and other nations. The State House has revealed what the president told the stakeholders during the meeting.

In a statement on Twitter the State House said that that Ruto asked the stakeholders to develop a marketable tea brand that will earn Kenyan farmers a good price in the market. Ruto said that processed tea from Kenya has been used to market other brands outside Kenya earning our farmers little cash.

“The instructions to the ministry are very clear. We must have a Kenya tea brand that we can market,” the Head of State said.
