First Lady Margaret Kenyatta has broken silence as she commended locally owned agro-processing factories for supporting the industrialization pillar of the Government's Big 4 Agenda.
Speaking today during a tour of Maramba Tea Factory (which is farmers’ enterprise that mostly employs women as workers and provides livelihoods to over 2000 households) while accompanied by her Hungarian counterpart Anita Herczegh, the First Lady Margaret said the processors are helping to create employment and wealth for host communities.
This visit to the factory is an opportunity for visiting Hungarian First Lady to get a first hand experience in the Kenyan tea value addition process right from the farm to the cup. While giving her remarks, First Lady Anita Herczegh praised Kenyan tea farmers and processors for consistently producing high quality tea both for export and domestic consumption.
First Lady is companying her husband President János Áder who is on a four-day state visit of Kenya after being invited by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
