Kenyan flower farms back to full operations

Flower farms across the country have now resumed full operations and all workers have been recalled after closure caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The employers have honoured an agreement with Cotu to recall all the workers who were sent on unpaid leave.

The Kenya Plantations and Agricultural Workers Union (KPAWU) said, all workers in Naivasha, which is home to tens of flower farms, had resumed duty. Kenya has about 100 flower farms. 

Secretary general in Naivasha Ferdinand Juma said they were in talks with the farmers to make sure that all the workers on unpaid leave were back on the job.

“Around 98 per cent of the workers in the flower farms have resumed duty and we are in discussions with one of the farms to allow the remaining 300 to return,” he said.
