For improving the cane delivery from cane fields to mill, the West Kenya Sugar Mill has purchased 18 tractors. This will help the mill to procure cane from Kakamega and Bungoma counties.
Jaswant Rai, chairman, West Kenya said that the investment has been done to increase the growth of the factory by facilitating the supply of sugarcane from fields in the nearby region. The bad state of the roads frequently affected the transportation and harvesting of the sugarcane.
Company head of human resource and administration Duncan Abwao said, “The tractors will increase our production as we will get more sugarcane for factories from the sugarcane fields.”
With the new tractors, the total number of tractors with the mill goes up to 127.
