Parliament warns Nzoia, Butali sugar companies

30 October 2013, 12:37 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - The Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture has sounded a stern warning to Nzoia and Butali Sugar factories for failure to appear before it after the summon.

Hon. Justice Kamei, the Committee's Chairman, said they had summoned all Sugar millers management to look into the rising cases of cane poaching and decline in sugar production.

"We would like to sent a stun warning to sugar millers top management who have have failed to appear before this constitutional Committee that legal action will be taken against them upon failure when summoned again," said Kamei.

"Sugarcane farmers in Western region are facing many challenges, and as the Agriculture Committee mandated constitutionally to settled those problems, we will not compromise the factory management's ignorance to accountability,"he added.

Kamei said that the witnessed poor production of sugar in the country has led to importation of counterfeit sugar that does not meet the Kenya Bureau of Standards quality hence put the Kenya Sugar Board on notice for laxity in monitoring the companies.

He further said that the Committee will table the motion in Parliament for the withdrawal factory's license of operation if found that the management is incompetent and does not want to be accountable.

There has been a growing rate of cane poaching especially Mumias Sugar accusing West Kenya factory of poaching its cane.
