State Minister for Teso Affairs, Kenneth Clement Ongalo Obote

Minister asks agri investors to sign MoUs with Ugandan growers

State Minister for Teso Affairs, Kenneth Clement Ongalo Obote, has asked those wishing to establish agri-processing factories in the Teso Sub-region to enact terms and conditions with farmer groups on the pricing of raw materials.

Mr Ongalo said he raised the concern because he has failed to realize the benefits that the Soroti fruit factory has brought to the lives of people in Teso.

On a cassava factory, promised by  President Museveni, Ongalo told farmers that he will compel those coming to establish the plant to set clear terms on matters of pricing for the tubers. Ongalo said his ministry will help track modalities that will benefit farmers, adding that he will also oversee establishment for model demonstration cassava farms under the supervision of the ministry so that farmers have quality seed.
