Kenya: Eagle Pledges Increased Profits for Kiambu Farmers

The Eagle Alliance has promised to solve farmers' problems if it wins the March 4 elections. Speaking yesterday at Lari district after addressing residents, the alliance's presidential running mate Ronnie Osumba assured the farmers of support saying they are an important contributor to the country's economy.

"Our government will offer better terms on agricultural produce and elevate the lives of our farmers for self development. Agriculture plays a significant role in bolstering the country's economy," he said.

Osumba said they will upgrade all markets in the country to enable farmers to sell their produce."We will make sure that all our markets are improved. Farmers will sell their goods internationally to make increased profits," said Osumba.

He promised that the alliance will improve all the roads in farming areas to enable farmers transport their produce with ease to the markets.

He asked the youth to support the Eagle Alliance because "it is the only one that will empower them and create jobs".Osumba further asked the youth to utilise their talents by creating income generating projects instead of taking part in crime.
