COTTON farmers in Siaya have asked the county government to revive Ndere ginnery. They said this will provide a ready market for their produce, which has not been sold for several months.
Okoko said the cotton was harvested in November last year. He asked the government to revamp the ginnery to boost Siaya county's economy.
The two blamed the national government for duping residents to venture into cotton farming with the promise of ready market, which has remained elusive. They were speaking at Boro market in Siaya on Friday.
The farmers asked the government to set steady and regulated prices for cotton to cushion them from middlemen.
