In response to the challenges faced by the Tea sector as issued in executive order No. 3 of 2021 by H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta, today the Cabinet Secretary ministry of Agriculture Peter Munya introduced new reforms that will serve in the newly established TEA BOARD of Kenya
Key among the directives is that, the Tea Board of Kenya should jointly with other stakeholders and in compliance with all applicable requirements sanction immediate election in all tea factories within (60) days from the date of executive order
The Board members will therefore be elected and appointed during the Annual General Meetings in
accordance with the applicable laws and their respective Memorandum and Articles of Association.
Towards preparations of the elections, tea farmers should ensure that they issue a requisite notice and conduct their extra ordinary general meetings in line with their respective memorandum and articles of association.
Tea farmers should also notify , the Attorney General, the Tea Board of Kenya and the local security agencies of the time and venue of the extra ordinary general meetings to enable the Government provide necessary support for the meetings.
The cabinet secretary has also issued the timetable to aid tea farmers in planning and holding their meeting
