Moses Kuria's Bill to improve coffee sector among those set to be published

  • PublishedMarch 1, 2019

Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria has called on the Speaker Justin Muturi to present his Crops Amendment Bill to the House.

Kuria had presented his Bill in June last year proposing coffee exporters to process, pack and brand Kenyan coffee before shipment.

According to the MP, it was unacceptable for premium Kenyan coffee to continue being sold in the USA for  up to 90 dollars per  kilogram while local farmers get paid a measly Sh20 to Sh120 per kilogram.

“The National Assembly today passed a resolution directing that 24 legislative proposals that had delayed inordinately in pre-publication scrutiny be published as bills and brought for the First Reading with immediate effect. Among the bills is my Crops (Amendment) Bill that will ensure that all coffee farmers will start enjoying the fruits of their toil once again,” wrote Kuria on his Facebook page on Tuesday.
