Khalwale thanks Uhuru for KES 50 B sugar payout

04 October 2015, 10:16 William Korir

Nairobi - Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale is happy with the KES 50 billion sugar payout plan to boost the ailing sector.

President Uhuru Kenyatta Friday announced the plan at the Nairobi International Show, ending talk that a deal signed between Kenya and Uganda to import sugar into the country will be the death of the sector in Kenya.

Khalwale, a fiery campaigner for the sugar sector to be revived was happy with the news.

" It is good news. The President has done well for the people of the sugar belt who have suffered for the longest time," he said.

He was however insistent that there will be need for closer scrutiny of the funds to ensure they are used in the right manner.

" This time we have to ensure that the funds are well utilized. That will be very important," he added.

The sugar industry in Kenya has been suffering from mismanagement, poor planning and massive corruption, which has seen the country's biggest producers fall to their knees.

It is estimated that Mumias Sugar, the country's biggest miller has debts totaling to KES 8 billion.
