A SECTION of tea farmers in Bomet have threaten to boycott the election of KTDA directors later this month. The farmers from Chemaner and Tegat have vowed to paralyse the election if KTDA will not use a one-man-one-vote formula in the poll.
They said they are opposed to using number of shares owned by farmers to determine the strength of one's vote saying the allocation of shares was biased.
More than tea 100 farmers yesterday held a peaceful demonstration to Bomet county headquarters to plead for government intervention in the polls.
"We have come to issue warning that if a one man one vote formula will not apply during the election we will stop the election by force and the government should know on time and intervene," said Kiplangat Sigei.
