Disgruntled Tea Farmers In Kigezi Will Be Paid – Minister Bahati

The State Minister for Finance in charge of planning, David Bahati has said the government of Uganda is working around the clock to clear the payment of disgruntled tea nursery bed operators in the Kigezi region.

According to David Bahati, a recent cabinet meeting approved sh30bn fund towards the clearing of some tea farmers in the region.

In July, over 700 tea nursery bed operators from the region petitioned President Yoweri Museveni to prevail over the matter in which they were seeking payment for tea seedlings worthy sh143bn.

“We understand the challenges our tea farmers have gone through during this time and there is no doubt that government is yet to solve this problem,” said Bahati
