Police in Olenguruone, Kuresoi South are pursuing two men who broke into their boss’s house and stole police uniform and other valuables.

A 26 years old lady accomplice is fighting for her life at the Olenguruone sub-County Hospital after members of the public beat her up after she was found hiding in a toilet at the scene of the crime.

She said her two male associates, who hail from Sinedet and Taita villages, asked her to hide in the toilet before they fled. She revealed that they had a waiting customer to buy the items in Molo town.

The Olenguruone Police Station deputy OCS Inspector David Kiprotich said he was on leave and had travelled to his rural home in Bomet County when the robbers struck.

“I was notified that my house has been broken into and a suspect nabbed. I have since recorded a formal complaint at the Olenguruone Police Station,” the Police Inspector stated.

Question remain how a police house can be broken into at a police living quarters and government items stollen. Sources say this is a second incident in recent times where officers at the station have lost items to robbers.

“The break-in at the police quarters is a clear indication of the security situation in the region. It is at its worst,” Mr Kiplagat lamented.

Over 231 farmers in Kuresoi South who were given free pyrethrum seedlings by the Nakuru County government have started reaping benefits from the crop.

Those interviewed said they harvest the cash crop twice a month and now pocket good money enabling them to pay their children’s school fee with ease as well as boosting their livelihoods.

” I am now like any other salaried person because I harvest the crop twice a week and sell them after every month Ksh. 200 a kilo and get at least sh. 15,000 monthly. I have, therefore, extended a half an acre and am waiting for rains to start so that I plant one more acre,” Joshua Tonui said

He added that before planting pyrethrum, he used to plant potatoes and peas that were costly and required intensive care with a lot of fertilizers, spraying with chemicals only to be disappointed by exploitative selling prices.

In 2018, Governor Lee Kinyanjui launched the Pyrethrum Revival program that saw farmers from Kuresoi South, Kuresoi North, Subukia, Gilgil and Molo receive planting materials.

Joseph Koech, Julius Langat, Amos Tuitoek and Alfred Koech are among the farmers who got the seedlings for a quarter of an acre but have expanded after realising that the crop was well paying.

They thanked the Governor for reviving the crop and bringing in investors who buy from them at good prices adding that according to experts the produce from the region has high pyrethrin content.

” We are so much grateful to Governor Lee Kinyanjui for showing us the way. Once you have planted only weeding is required. He put money in our pockets. This is a true leader who minds for his electorate,” he said

Koech however, said, having seen how the crop has changed the lives of many, there is high demand for seedlings among the locals, so requested the County government to distribute more seedlings before the onset of heavy rains in April.

Sub-county Agricultural Officer, Ms Grace Langat said the farmers in 2018, 2019 and 2020 got disease-free and certified pyrethrum planting materials from the County Government of Nakuru under the pyrethrum revival program.

Hass avocado

The flagship Hass Avocado farming program by the County Government of Nakuru has started yielding fruits.

Over the weekend, 14 farmers in Amalo and Kiptagich wards in Kuresoi South sub-County harvested and sold 4.2 tons of avocados.

Processors and exporters, among them Sunripe Kenya Ltd that is buying a kilogram of the fruit at Sh110, have camped in the region.

Sunripe Kenya Ltd field officer Mr Samuel Ndura said Kenyan farmers can not satisfy the local and international avocado market.

He urged farmers to plant more avocado trees. The company has taken upon itself to educate farmers on proper crop husbandry.

Kuresoi South sub-County agricultural officer Ms Grace Lang’at said farmers in the region so far have over 20,000 avocado trees.

She urged farmers to form cooperatives to help in marketing, offering extension services and seedling propagations.

Mr Paul Mitei, a small scale farmer at Kitoben in Amalo Ward said avocado is more profitable compared to tea and maize farming.

He said the farmers were in the process of forming cooperatives to enjoy incentives such as free seedlings and training by the County.

Mr Japhet Mutai, an avocado farmer in Kiptagich Ward said avocado farming is a profitable venture urging farmers to diversify on crops.
