Why Uhuru is re-opening PanPaper

28 April 2016, 22:01 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced a KES 6 billion re-opening of the PanPaper factory in Webuye Western Kenya. Not all though see the move as straightforward.

The President made the announcement Thursday saying that the move would resurrect the economy of the western Kenya region which has been dependant on the existence of the PanPaper factory.

This follows a KES 1 billion boost to Mumias Sugar announced earlier this week which has made it a glorious week for the region.

Some beg to differ though.

The feeling is that it being a number of months to the 2017 General Elections, the President has pulled the move to ensure that the Luhya vote goes the way of the Jubilee Coalition come the polls.

"The President's mission is to win Luhya votes ahead of the elections," FORD Kenya MP Simiyu Eseli said.

" This late to the elections and this comes up. Why did the President not do this a long time ago as PanPaper's problems have been well known,"he posed.

 Regardless of the politics behind it, it is still good news for the region.

" PanPaper was a big reason for the growth of towns like Webuye and others around it and the return will be welcome," he added.
