Activist Boniface Mwangi, has exposed how Kenyatta’s family is over exploiting milk farmers in Kenya using their Brookside Company.
Through his twitter handle, the former Starehe MP aspirant,has claimed that Kenyatta’s family is exploiting farmers by buying their milk at a lowest price of between Sh25-27 from the initial market price of sh.35.
Boniface Mwangi has gone ahead to attach a screenshot of the messages sent by Brookside company to milk farmers showing the reduction of the milk prices by sh.3.
Mwangi has since asked the family to reconsider renaming the country ‘Kenyatta’ as they own almost everything in the nation.
“President Kenyatta’s family have almost full monopoly in the dairy industry. They’re exploitatively buying a litre of milk for between Sh25-27. Let’s rename Kenya to Kenyatta afterall they have Kenya’s title deed,” Mwangi tweeted.

This expose by Boniface Mwangi comes barely after Rift Valley Milk farmers took on the street to protest the drastic drop of raw milk prices saying it is not equal to the cost of production.
The dejected farmers insisted that the move to liberalize East African markets has made it impossible for them to get value for their money.
Their sentiments come in wake of plans by an umbrella that advocates for Dairy farmers to boycott delivery of raw milk to processors.
Kenya Dairy Farmers Federation (KDFF) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Gideon Birgen said they will boycott delivery of their yields as a protest to the continued reduction of milk prices.
