Ababu snubs Uhuru State House invitation

13 August 2015, 13:39 William Korir

Nairobi - A group of Western Kenya leaders have declined a request by President Uhuru Kenyatta to have talks over the recent sugar trade deal signed with Uganda.

Ababu, together with 11 other MPs from the region had been invited for talks by State House over the controversial move to accept sugar imports from Uganda at the detriment of the struggling sugar industry in the country and especially western Kenya where the major sugar mills are based.

The talks had been called by Uhuru after his move to sign a sugar deal with Uganda which will allow cheap sugar imports.

The move had already been criticized by CORD leader Raila Odinga and western Kenya leaders, who have worked hard to try revive the ailing Mumias Sugar and others in the region.

Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale says that the move is unfounded.

" We cannot be fighting to revive our industries and then the President goes and signs a deal to effectively kill it," Khalwale said Thursday.

Uhuru defended the move to sign the deal Wednesday, stating that it would be a win win situation for Kenya.

" We will get our meat farmers a chance to export their products too," he said.

Odinga on his part stated that the move was just bad all round and was a raw deal.
