Oparanya wants those who swindled Mumias Sugar arrested

12 February 2015, 14:27 Nechesa Chemoi

Kakamega - Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya has called for the disbandment of the entire board of directors of troubled Mumias Sugar Company.

According to Oparanya, the company’s senior managers should be sacked and bring in new people who will help revive the company.

“For MSC to get back on track the entire board should be disbanded and new ones brought in. They were there when money was swindled,” Oparanya said.

He maintained that the company should be restructured and the number of managers reduced to a reasonable size for effectiveness and efficiency.

Oparanya said those who brought down the company through illegal business activities and corruption should be made to pay the money back.

The governor came to the defence of sugar farmers in the county, saying they millers should pay them on time. 

“Sugarcane farmers must be independent of the millers and empowered so that they can benefit from their sweat. Millers must pay them on time,” he said.

Last month, the government said would inject KES 500 million shillings to help turn around the financially struggling company.

This comes even as leaders called for the arrest and prosecution of people who were mentioned in a report that was conducted to ascertain what happened to the company’s finances.
