Uganda: Out-growers stranded as factory delays to buy sugarcane.
Over 100 sugar cane out growers in Njeru Municipality, Buikwe District are stranded with sugarcane after managers of GM Sugar Factory delayed to buy it from them.
“Our cane is almost drying up but the company is giving priority to their own sugar cane. We have to wait for their trucks to offload before they can think about ours and this can take another week,” Ibrahim Namabunda, a sugar cane out grower told Daily Monitor over the weekend.
