H.E. Raila Amolo Odinga On Saturday 5th of May 2018 paid a courtesy call to Kanyaboli Nurseries where he was hosted by his good friend Mr Edwin Ng'ong'a.
H.E. Raila Odinga urged locals to invest heavily in Avocado fruit as a cash crop as the world has embraced the avocado fruit due to its immense health benefits and there is a shortage of supply of good quality avocados to the Western world, Far East and Europe.
Avocado is now fetching very good prices in the international market and rivaling the prominent cash crops such as tea and coffee - in which Kenya has been one of the best suppliers to the international market.
H.E. Raila Amolo Odinga urged locals to seek proper training through Mr Edwin Ng'ong'a who is an expert in Avocado growing at the same time they can acquire quality seedlings that are acceptable in the international market.
Mr. Ngonga is the progressive force behind the Lake Kanyaboli Nurseries and Kanyaboli Trading - an investment that is doing massive investment in agriculture to help uplift the economy of Western Kenya as a whole. Lake Kanyaboli Nurseries has invested in various tree and fruit nurseries running into into their millions - locals and traders across East Africa can easily get access to top quality seedlings that will assist them in their agricultural pursuits.
Lake Kanyaboli Nurseries has hired top experts from Germany and working closely with local universities is in the process of setting up an avocado processing factory in Kisumu.
At the same time the Kanyaboli Trading will be the vehicle through which top quality fruit will hit the international market. Top grade Avocado (Persea americana), Passion Fruit, Oranges, Papaya and Mango will now be processed and sold locally and internationally.
