Atiak Sugar Factory Caught in People's Drama


Hopes of Atiak Sugar factory being operational this year, hangs in balance again. This is after the ministry of finance failed to release the 47 billion shillings under the Agricultural credit Facility that is required for the completion of the factory. Finance minister Matia Kasaija who in July this year committed to availing the required funds, now says there is no money despite a presidential directive to release the required funds.
