Deputy President has revealed that Kenyan farmers are now unable to sell their coffee to millers as coffee cartels have blocked auction.
In a statement, the Deputy President announced that those who currently buy coffee from Kenyans have decided to sabotage the farmer.
Gachagua explained that they have been able to achieve that by refusing to buy the product. This has negatively affected the farmer since the buyers currently enjoy a monopoly in the Kenyan market.
“They have blocked the auction so that we can panic and fall for their tricks. We are not relenting,” Gachagua regretted.
He vowed to look for more markets until farmers break even.
“I am now heading to Germany to look for the coffee market, and I can assure you that we aren’t losing on this one,” he promised farmers.
