Privatisation Commission Opposes Sale Of Sugar Millers To County Governments
May 26 15
A team that oversees the privatisation of government-owned companies has opposed plans by county governments to buy South Nyanza Sugar Co. Ltd., Muhoroni Sugar Company, Miwani Sugar Company, Chemelil Sugar Company Limited and Nzoia Sugar Company Limited (sugar millers). The regional governments have asked the Privatisation Commission to allow them to acquire sugar millers and pay by instalments. However, Henry Obwocha, chairman of Privatisation Commission, said on May 25, 2015, that it would be inappropriate to sell the millers to county governments. He said it would be illogical to transfer the companies from one government to another. "The challenges facing the sugar industry have largely been blamed on the involvement of the government. Why should we then transfer these challenges to another government, the county administration?" he told the Nation.
