Construction of Ksh500M MoiSoy Milling Plant Taking Shape – PHOTOS


Construction works for the Ksh500 million MoiSoy milling plant in Kabenes, Ziwa Ward, Uasin Gishu County are taking shape.

The milling plant being set up through a union of cooperatives with the support of the County Government of Uasin Gishu is aimed at boosting farmers’ earnings through value addition.

Works on the project have been ongoing for the last few years, and the actual setting up of the plant started sometime in 2020 after the arrival of equipment that had been imported.

Uasin Gishu County Executive Committee Member (CECM) of Cooperatives and Enterprise Development Esther Mutai on Tuesday, June 7, 2022, conducted a routine check of the ongoing construction of the milling plant.

Mutai noted that the mega project that is expected to change the fortune of farmers in the county is being spearheaded by at least 52 primary cooperative societies that agreed to construct silos and wet bins.

She expressed optimism that farmers will be able to generate good returns following their maize milling resulting in value addition.

MoiSoy Milling plant is one of the Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago’s legacy projects.

He has been advising farmers to buy shares for the plant so that they fully own the project.

Mandago who is serving his second and last term as county boss has in the last few years been assuring locals that all the projects he initiated will be completed before he exits office.

It is now a race of time for the milling plant to be completed before the August 9 poll.

Other key projects that will remain a legacy for the governor are Ziwa and Burnt Forest Level 5 Hospitals which jointly cost over Ksh1.2 billion.

Both projects are yet to be completed with only two months before a new governor is elected.

Ziwa Sub County Hospital construction works as of October 2021.

Ziwa Level 5 Hospital in Soy Sub County, will, once complete be a 350-bed health facility – expected to provide specialized inpatient and outpatient services.
