Cane farmers up in arms over new zoning plan
A section of cane farmers has expressed outrage against the re-introduction of cane zoning by the Sugar Task Force.
The farmers’ privy to the final draft Report were surprised to find that the final document again factored in cane zoning, which they had vehemently rejected at previous countrywide hearings. On Wednesday, Kenya National Alliance of Sugarcane farmers, (Knasfo), Chairman and former MP Saul Busolo wondered why the amendments were not implemented as earlier agreed on.
In addition, Kenya national sugarcane growers union, (Kesga), secretary-general Richard Ogendo also told Standard in Kisumu that they were surprised with the Zoning move.
