He said it is the BBI that will aid in fighting corruption, a vice he said has impoverished Kenyans.
Speaking at the Super Cup tournament sponsored by Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala, Siaya Senator James Orengo said there is no let up in corruption fight noting that Kenya has the potential to grow the economy but is riddled with corruption that keeps impeding economic growth.
The taskforce that was co-chaired by Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri and Kakamega County Governor Wycliffe Oparanya was formed to look into permanent ways of tackling the challenges facing the sugar sector.
Other members of the Taskforce included Governors Okoth Obado (Migori), Anyang’ Nyong’o (Kisumu), and some millers among others.
