Kiambu to table bill to regulate production and sale of animal feeds.

Kiambu County Government plans to table a bill in the assembly to regulate production and sale of animal feeds within the county.

While speaking after visiting Uplands Bacon Factory in Lari Sub-county in the company of the Cabinet Secretary for Trade, Industry and Cooperative Peter Munya, Deputy Governor James Nyoro said that the move aims at protecting livestock farmers from exploitation by unscrupulous traders as well as assist farmers to optimise production.

Nyoro promised to engage stakeholders and the National government to ensure the land on which the company stands, was reverted back to the county government so as to ease the process and revival of the factory.

“Some of the key areas we are going to focus on are; enhancing production, integration of youths and other farmers into pig farming with the support of SME funds and ultimate value addition due to huge impacts in increased incomes and jobs creation,” said the DG.

The DG and the CS later visited Tilisi Mixed-Use Development in Limuru Sub-county, which sits on 400 acres.

He said that his government encouraged such investments aimed at transforming the county into mini-cities.

“We will hasten approvals for buildings and development plans to ensure timely implementation of all projects falling within the Big 4 Agenda especially in Housing and Manufacturing.
