President Kenyatta orders a raft of reforms at KTDA to address operational and governance challenges amid farmers' outcry over-exploitation. 


He also expressed concerns about the milk farmers who had to pour their products due to the low market.


“My second intent for the year is to increase the money in the pocket of our farmers and I believe this will be achieved by directing our anti-corruption efforts against those managing the agricultural sector and exploiting their position for illegal gain…” President Uhuru Kenyatta stated.


“I have directed the National Treasury to release Ksh.500M to the new KCC to purchase excess milk from farmers and convert this milk into powder for future use. I have also directed them to release a further Ksh.575M for 2 milk-plants to enhance their (KCC) processing capacity" President Uhuru Kenyatta further stated.
