We shall implement guaranteed minimum returns – President Ruto

President William Ruto addresses the EU-Kenya Business Forum 2023

The Government will implement the Guaranteed Minimum Returns programme as pledged.

President William Ruto said this will ensure that farmers earn a stable income even when market conditions are adverse.

It was his desire to see farmers profit from their economic activities.

“We must break the poverty cycle that is associated with farming in our country,” he argued.

The Head of State was speaking on Saturday during a public meeting in Karatina, Nyeri County.

“We want agriculture to be transformed into a profit-making venture so that our farmers can earn more.”

He said the move will be supported by the Government’s deliberate plan to invest in agro-processing and value addition.
