Farmers protest as scandalous Tea Board of Kenya postpones election


Hon. Frankline Mithika Linturi, Cabinet Secretary for Agriculture and Livestock Development and Tea Board of Kenya Chairman Dr. David Kiarie Mburu

The corruption-ridden entity Tea Board of Kenya has postponed directors’ elections to 2024.

For starters, tea farmers are lied to, shortchanged, and sabotaged by the two players in the tea sector: KTDA and Tea Board of Kenya.

Representation by farmers using Tea Board of Kenya was sabotaged as the KTDA made sure that puppets were appointed to it.

Now those puppets are being given a free lease to stay longer as directors.

KTDA directors plunder the monies they get and pass the costs to farmers. They go on borrowing sprees and come back to misuse the funds.

According to the law, a third of directors are required to retire annually with an option of seeking reelection for second and final three-year term.

The delay means that some directors will serve for six years uninterrupted since the memorandum of association for tea factories does not envisage a situation where all directors are subjected to election.

A section of farmers and former directors have protested the move.

“The elections that saw them occupying the offices were done against a court order. They have now gone ahead to postpone the election without involving members of the public through public participation,” said former zone two director, Francis Macharia.

John Kamau, a farmer, said the amendment was only brought forward during the AGM and there was no room to approve or reject it.

Surely the new government should make the rogue directors pay for this incompetence.

This is robbery, snd the best thing to do is to disband KTDA. It serves the imperialists purpose of ‘keeping things in check’ to advance farmers’ exploitation.
