Nyandarua County Government plans to revive the controversial Njabini Midlands agro-processing company in an effort to empower farmers to be major shareholders.
Governor Francis Kimemia says once the process is completed, farmers will be asked to form a cooperative society that will see them directly contribute to stability of the fresh produce factory.
Kimemia announced that consultations with the directors are underway adding that his administration has pumped in a substantial amount of money to supplement the national Government allocation of 100 million shillings to revive the factory.
He urged farmers to form a cooperative society to ensure they get utmost benefit.
Speaking at Ol-Kalou trading centre during cerebrations to mark this year’s World Cooperative Day, Kimemia called on leaders to work together in order to realize the dreams and aspirations of the residents.
Nyandarua Chairman of Cooperative Union Joseph Murega called for concerted efforts from stakeholders to ensure critical challenges facing majority of the cooperative societies are addressed, sentiments echoed by Nyandarua West Deputy Commissioner Gedion Oyagi.
