Ababu leads Western Kenya leaders in Uhuru talks

22 June 2015, 15:13 William Korir

Nairobi - Budalang'i MP Ababu Namwamba has led a group of Western Kenya leaders to State House for talks with President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto.

The 25 MPs met the top two government leaders Monday in talks over the revival of the Mumias Sugar Company which is a huge backbone to the region's economy.

President Kenyatta stressed that the meeting was not politically inclined and urged no talk about it in that manner.

" Let it be known what the talks were about. There should be no politicization of this meeting and the efforts to revive Mumias Sugar," he said.

The Mumias Sugar Company is the country's biggest in terms of acreage as well as farmers linked to it but is under receivership over mismanagement of funds.

The company is said to be nearly KES 8 billion in debt.

The government last year pledged to give the company KES 5 billion to be able to pay farmers and revive production.

Namwamba, the Orange Democratic Movement ODM Secretary General said that the efforts to revive the company are important to the region.

" It is vital that we revive the company to lift the region's farmers and economy," he stated.

Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa and his Webuye counterpart Alfred Sambu were among the leaders who accompanied Ababu to the meet-up.

The meeting comes a few days after CORD leader Raila Odinga also met leaders from the region, where he insisted on unity and efforts to revive Mumias and Webuye's Pan Paper companies.
