Do­min­ion Ltd lease ‘won’t be re­newed’

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

Si­aya Gov­er­nor Cor­nel Rasanga has said Do­min­ion Com­pany Ltd’s lease at Yala Swamp will not be re­newed. The European in­vestor leased the land for 25 years. Ranguma said the com­pany will leave at the end of the re­main­ing 12 years. The agree­ment was en­tered into with the now-de­funct Si­aya and Bondo county coun­cils in 2003. Rasanga said the com­pany has not been of help to the com­mu­nity for the 13 years it has op­er­ated. He said his ad­min­is­tra­tion will go to court to stop the com­pany from grow­ing sug­ar­cane be­cause its core ac­tiv­ity as per the agree­ment was rice farm­ing.
