BY CORRESPONDENT,ELDORET,4TH JAN,2018-Fire broke out early Thursday burning a section of the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) Eldoret depot.
According to Uasin Gishu County Secretary Peter Lelei and the county executive in charge of Roads Gideon Birir have commended the county emergency team for their swift action which helped put out the fire on time.
“The situation could have been worse had the fire spread to adjacent silos which serve as the country’s strategic grain reserve,” said Mr Lelei.
The fire comes at a time when hundreds of farmers are lined up to deliver their maize produce to the NCPB depot in the grain basket.
