Governor receives Flourspar Task Force Report
Elgeyo Marakwet governor Wisley Rotich received the Taskforce Report on Flourspar Mining Company.
The report is a culmination of a public engagement process where the 15 member team spent time taking views and recommendations from local residents.
“I would like to commend the Joseph Kandie led team for a well done job and thank them for coming up with a comprehensive report which recommends the reopening of the mining company among other issues touching on compensation,” said the Governor.
He said he will be forwarding the report to CS Mining Salim Mvurya in the coming few days for necessary action.
“I would like to assure the people of Kimwarer that all their concerns will be considered. I am confident that the Mining Company which used to employ thousands of people both directly and indirectly will roar back to life soon,” added Rotich.
Present were Soy North MCA Simon Chepseba and his Soy South counterpart Jonah Tanui.
