Nakuru The government has set aside Sh67 million to help clear debts in the pyrethrum sector, Agriculture Secretary Felix Koskei has said.
Speaking during a visit to the Pyrethrum Regulatory Board offices in Nakuru yesterday, Koskei said Sh19 million will be released by next week to pay the twomonth salary arrears of the employees. He said the Sh48 million owed to farmers will be paid by the end of this year.
"We will provide enough funds to pay the employees and farmers," Koskei said. Many farmers have abandon the crop due to non-paymer for their crop.
