Bamboo Farmers

Bamboo Farmers get Ready Market...

Elgeyo Marakwet Governor, Alex Tolgos, has launched a Countywide planting of Bamboo at Emsoo dam, Keiyo North. Speaking during the launch, Tolgos said his government has collaborated with a Nairobi based firm Green Pot with whom they have entered into an MOU to purchase Bamboo products from the county. The company buys and exports bamboo which is in high demand in countries like China. Under the MOU the firm will purchase bamboo products for the next 16 years and further establish a factory in the county. The Governor encouraged farmers to venture in to this profitable venture which now has a ready market.
