MPs up in arms over delayed coffee payment

03 September 2014, 23:04 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - County members of parliament are up in arms over delayed release of money owed to coffee farmers from the county.

The MPs are demanding to know the status of Nyeri County coffee that has been milled at the Kenya Planters Coffee Union (KPCU) Sagana and marketed by Kenya Cooperative Coffee Exporters (KCCE). 

The MPs have written to the Director of Coffee Directorate of Kenya, stating that according to Coffee Act proceeds of sales of the commodity must be remitted to farmers within 14 days of the prompt date incase of Auction and for direct sales before shipment.

They added that they were aware that majority of Nyeri County coffee has been sold at the auction and therefore proceeds should by now have been remitted to farmers.

“The matter is urgent as the delay in remittance of farmers’ dues has caused untold suffering amongst our constituents,” they explained.

The politicians want a confirmation whether the farmers in Nyeri were paid.

They further want to know the volume of Nyeri County Coffee that has been milled and sold by KCCE either through Auction or direct sales window.

“We are aware over 35000 bags of clean coffee are currently being held at the KPCU Dandora complex by KCCE. Can you confirm if any of those stocks belong to Nyeri County?” they posed to the director.
