Kenya: Farm invests 180,000 USD in water

Baringo Senator Gideon Moi has called on local companies to adopt modern water technology.

Speaking when he launched a Sh18 million [180,000 USD] water filtering plant at Molo River Roses in Rongai, Nakuru County, yesterday, the senator said the multi-million shilling investment that uses Israeli water technology was a boon for the flower farm.

“This project will go a long way in making the flower farm competitive in terms of quality and quantity,” said Gideon, who is chairman of the farm.

The launch was also attended by the farm's patron, former President Daniel arap Moi.

The plant, which has been in development for the last two years, will see the farm recycle used, muddy water that previously clogged the drip irrigation system.
