South Nyanza Sugar Co. Ltd. Key Developments

Court Extends Order Barring Sale of Sugar Cos.

The Privatisation Commission has said it followed due process in the sale of South Nyanza Sugar Co. Ltd.; Muhoroni Sugar Company; Miwani Sugar Company; Chemelil Sugar Company Limited; Nzoia Sugar Company Limited. In a response to a case filed by Kisumu Senator Anyang' Nyong'o and Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo, the commission, through its Chief Executive Officer Solomon Kitungu, denied locking out anyone with additional proposals regarding the privatization process. "The privatization process is not flawed in any way as it is being undertaken in compliance with a comprehensive legal framework; the sugar companies are public investments to the national government [and] hence this case has no significant impact on protection of public interest and should be dismissed," Solomon Kitungu said. MP Jakoyo Midiwo was in court when High Court Judge Weldon Korir extended orders stopping the sale of South Nyanza Sugar Co. Ltd.; Muhoroni Sugar Company; Miwani Sugar Company; Chemelil Sugar Company Limited; Nzoia Sugar Company Limited.

Court Halts Privatization Of Sugar Factories

The High Court has stopped the privatisation of five sugar companies for a period of two months following an urgent case contesting the sale. Justice Weldon Korir issued the directive after Kisumu Senator Anyang' Nyong'o and Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo moved to court claiming the process is being done unprocedurally. "The commission should only proceed with the sale after consultations among and participation of all stakeholders is done and thorny issuers ironed out," Justice Korir said in his ruling on April 12, 2016. According Nyong'o and Midiwo, there are pending weighty issues raised by stakeholders on the privatization process that are yet to be resolved. Consequently, the judge prohibited the Privatization Commission from proceeding with the sale of Nzoia Sugar Company Limited, Chemelil Sugar Company Limited, Muhoroni Sugar Company and Miwani sugar company.

Court To Give Decision On Sale Of Five Sugar Firms

The fate of five sugar firms in western Kenya that were scheduled for sale will be known on March 7, 2016, when the High Court gives directions on their privatisation. The sale of Muhoroni Sugar Company, Chemelil Sugar Company Limited, Nzoia Sugar Company Limited, Miwani Sugar Company and South Nyanza Sugar Co. Ltd. was stopped through orders sought by the Transition Authority (TA). The TA accused the Privatisation Commission of not involving the authority in the sale of the factories, adding that the "expenditure on further advertising and invitations of interest is a waste of public funds".
