It will lead to the cancellation of the provisional title issued to Crossley Holdings Limited and pave way for the Transfer of the land to Miwani Sugar Factory.

The result comes after the meeting between the Ministry of Agriculture Legal Team, Miwani Sugar Joint Receiver Manager Francis Ooko and Francis Muraguri, Lands Principal. They had discussed the issue on September 30 this year that resolved to acquire the grabbed Miwani Sugar company land.
