Chelugui: Great strides made in Coffee sector

The Government has made major strides in the coffee sector.

Co-operatives Cabinet Secretary Simon Chelugui says the strides will go a long way in reviving the sector.

He spoke on March 20, 2024 when he joined Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, in Murang’a during commissioning of Murang’a Coffee Mills factory.

The event was a culmination of weeks and months of commitment and dedication by leaders and more than 110,000 farmers from some 51 cooperative societies in Murang’a County.

“We are making great strides in the Coffee Subsector and the reforms the government has put in place are bearing fruits,” he stated.

According to the CS, farmers are central to these reforms based on the Bottom Up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA) as we all acknowledge the fact that coffee is a key economic earner.

The new factory will process and add value to our coffee.

This will fetch more and actualize the vision of putting more money into the pocket of the farmer.

Also in attendance were: Murang’a Governor Dr Irungu Kang’ata, Deputy Governor Mburu Munaini, the host MP Mary Wamaua, Senators John Methu (Nyandarua), Karungo Thang’wa (Kiambu), Veronica Maina (Nominated), Raphael Chimera (Kwale), Jubilee Party leader Sabina Chege and MPs Michael Muchira (Ol Jorok), Mohammed Ali (Nyali), Edward Muriu (Gatanga), John Kaguchia (Mukurwe-ini), Njeri Maina (Kirinyaga Woman Rep), Kuria Kimani (Molo), Peter Kihungi (Kangema), Kamau Munyoro (Kigumo), the host Nginda Ward Representative Mwangi wa Mpesa, among other leaders.
