Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Ambetsa Oparanya has expressed his support to Sarrai Group following the lease of Mumias Sugar Company assets to the Uganda-based conglomerate by the miller’s receiver manager Pongangipalli Venkata Ramana Rao.

Governor Oparanya was speaking during the lighting ceremony of Christmas tree at the County Headquarters where he revealed that the investor will be officially unveiled next week. Key players, the County boss explained, were involved and consulted in the leasing process expressing optimism that the factory will be resuscitated.

“Key stakeholders including President Uhuru Kenyatta and myself were consulted before the lease was granted to Sarrai Group; what is most important now is for everyone to support the revival efforts as we look forward to normal operations at the factory,” the Governor said.

Sarrai Group consists of different agro-manufacturing companies, which runs three sugar factories (Hoima, Kiryandongo and Kinyara) in the neighbouring country, producing about 170,000 tonnes of sugar annually. It also has operations in Malawi.

The Governor used the occasion to appreciate the people of Kakamega County for electing him as their pioneer Governor in 2013 and trusting him in 2017 with a second stint at the helm of the County leadership, thanking his staff for working tirelessly to ensure he achieves his development agenda.

During the event, the less fortunate members of the society received donations of assorted food items from the County Government of Kakamega.

Deputy Governor H.E Prof. Philip Museve Kutima thanked Governor Oparanya on behalf of County staff for his sound and visionary leadership. The DG who has declared his bid for the County’s top seat said he was ready to serve the people of Kakamega as their second County CEO.
