President William Ruto has claimed cartels in the agriculture sector are financing planned public protests by Opposition leader Raila Odinga.

Speaking in Kirinyaga on Sunday, the President said Raila’s public rally on Monday is the brainchild of corrupt players in the agriculture sector who are fighting back against his plan to weed them out.

“We must ensure that farmers’ businesses are thriving because they are the surest solutions for our food security intervention. These cartels and corrupt people in the coffee, tea and milk industries are the ones financing the protests because of our plan to get rid of cartels,” he said.

“Let them protest however they want but they must leave farmers alone. They can finance whatever they want to finance but our farmers can never be the slaves of brokers and cartels who have taken hostage our market,” he said.

President Ruto further gave Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua the green light to lead the fight against cartels.
