What you need to know:

  • And in spite of the expected bumper harvest, Mr Kanyotu is not a happy man.
  • He says he will likely incur huge losses since he cannot sell his produce, blaming the situation on bad roads.
  • He expected to make Sh80,000 when the cabbages were ready for harvesting three months ago, since every head was going for Sh12.
  • Mr Kanyotu added that he has not made any profit for the past three years and expected things to change this season because his cabbages did well.

It’s a 30-minutes walk from the main road to Kapsita Farm in Elburgon, Nakuru County. The dark clouds in the sky and the chill signify a potential downpour.
