Speaking on Tuesday, Chief executive officer Errol Johnston stated that faulty equipment at the company would be fixed during the three month period.

“This is to bring to the notice of our farmers and stakeholders that management of Mumias Sugar Company Limited wishes to take advantage of the prevailing weather conditions to shut down the factory for routine repairs and maintenance,” Mr Johnston stated.

The CEO said the company will run until Sunday, April 10 before it's closed completely on Monday.

"Sunday will be our last day of production. We call upon all our clients to bear with the situation as the sugar factory undergoes urgent maintenance,” he stated.

However, Johnston disclosed that farmers would continue receiving the usual crop husbandry to boost the productivity of sugarcane crop in the area.

Mumias has been facing financial hurdles compelling the government to intervene. The cash-strapped miller was given Sh239 million as part of the Sh1 billion bailout strategy.
