Deputy President William Ruto wants due diligence by agencies probing the importation of contraband sugar for the sake of clear courses of action.
Ruto emphasised on Friday that the government will not allow unscrupulous traders to thrive at the expense of local businesses.
“We do not want investors who bring in sub-standard products that affect the health of Kenyans. We will do all we can to ensure quality standards are met wherever goods are brought into the country,” he said.
The DP also noted that reports from Parliament and the DCI will help the government to take a “decisive step” in line with the protection of Kenyans’ interests.
He spoke at Joy Valley Special School at Kimatuni in Bumula, Bungoma County, to which he donated a bus.
Regarding infrastructure, Ruto put on notice the contractor working on the 50 km Musikoma-Buyofu Road, saying any further delays will compel the government to cancel the work.
“I am glad about the progress on Chwele-Lwakhakha Road. Importantly, I should let you know that the CT Scan installation at Bungoma County Referral Hospital will be completed in the next four months.”
