Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya has vowed to punish Kenya Tea Development Agency’s factory managements who have filed cases against the newly established tea regulations.

Munya regretted that despite overwhelming support of the regulations which are aimed to reform the tea sector against exploitation some KTDA managements including Mungania Tea Factory in Embu have challenged them in court.

Speaking at Kibugu Coffee factory, Kairuri Ground, Rukuriri  shopping Centre and Runyenjes Town to coffee farmers Munya said the government is committed to reform the coffee and tea sectors which are very vital in the country’s economy, but a few selfish persons who have been unfairly exploiting farmers are frustrating the efforts.

He said the government facilitated facilitate a tea bill which provides for the regulations before it was assented by the president to became a law but  that despite that a few alleged disgruntled persons who were benefiting from the unfair tea sector operations are blocking the reforms.

“Who mandated them to use the huge amount of money to go to court while the farmers are for the regulations. We will not let them scot free and thus we will deal with them and audit their money misuse without farmers,” he said

He spoke when he conducted a public-participation-meeting on the coffee Bill 2020 which is pending in parliament which farmers endorsed. Legislators Eric Muchangi (Runyenjes), Sicily Mbarire Nominated senator Njeru Ndwiga and Governor Martin Wambora attended the meetings.

The bill aims to curb coffee farmers’ exploitation by cartels, and brokers.
