The more than 3000 farmers from Kombe, Kaptel Kapsisiywa, Kipchabo and Samoo tea growing regions in Nandi County converged at Chomisia center in Nandi to air their grievances.
The angry farmers said the economic challenges occasioned by Covid -19 pandemic had negatively impacted on them, and any further reduction of tea prices will worsen the situation.
