US investors express interest in pyrethrum

Published

on

Pyrethrum farmers are set for good tidings following increased interest in the sector by foreign investors. This follows an announcement by US Ambassador to Kenya Kyle McCarter that investors from his country are already in Kenya scouting to establish pyrethrum processing plants.McCarter said some US investors have already started setting up production factories in Nairobi.

“Pyrethrum is something that Kenya historically has seen a lot of prosperity from, and that market is coming back,” the envoy said during his tour of North Rift region recently. The envoy, who was speaking in Iten, Elgeyo-Marakwet County, said the US will continue supporting investments in Kenya, particularly in agriculture.

The cash crop used in the manufacture of agrochemicals including insecticides and pesticides was abandoned in the late 1990s following declining fortunes occasioned by the loss of key markets.McCarter encouraged pyrethrum manufacturers who had quit the business in Kenya to return, saying there was immense potential in the sector.

“We shall continue our support for agriculture. We have some US investors who are already in Kenya now to invest in pyrethrum. We want to encourage investors who left the country to return,” he said.

Largest producer

Elgeyo Marakwet Governor Alex Tolgos said his county was the second-largest producer of pyrethrum before the loss of market that triggered a shift to potatoes.The county boss noted that farmers from Elgeyo Marakwet highlands were ready for a revival of the crop as soon they are assured of a market.

“We invite investors from the US to our county. I wish we knew when the production factory was being established in Nairobi. We would have requested them to set it up in Elgeyo Marakwet,” said Tolgos.

He wooed American investors to set up another processing factory in Elgeyo Marakwet, which he noted will reduce transport costs to Nairobi.“Once we are assured of a market, our people will immediately start growing pyrethrum. We will also increase funds to the sector in our subsequent allocations.”Early this year, Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui announced plans to revive pyrethrum through a partnership with four State agencies.

These are Kenya Plant Health Inspectorate Service, Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organisation, the Pyrethrum Processing Company of Kenya and Egerton University.In the 1980s and early 1990s, Kenya was a major producer and player in the world’s pyrethrum sector. Nakuru, Elgeyo Marakwet, Nyandarua, Nyeri, Kiambu, Trans Nzoia, Uasin Gishu, Kisii and West Pokot were the highest producers.

Meet China’s 8-year-old coding instructor

Published

on

An eight-year-old Chinese boy logged in an online coding lesson not as a learner but as the teacher.

Vita has established a coding teaching channel in the Chinese video streaming site Bilibili in August and has so far gained close to 60,000 followers and more than one million views.

There is a growing number of children in China learning to code long before they even start school. This tendency has been fanned by parent’s conviction that coding prowess will be necessary for Chinese teenagers given the government’s technological drive.

“Coding is not that easy but also not that difficult; at least not as difficult as you have imagined,” says Vita, who lives in Shanghai.

The little boy teaches through his channel to tolerantly take his students, some older than him and young adults, bit by bit through an Apple-designed coding app called Swift Playgrounds

As he teaches, at times, he intentionally makes mistakes to assist in showing the frequent blunders to look out for.

“When I am teaching, I am learning new things at the same time,” adds Vita.

China has been investing a lot in robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI). In 2017 the government rolled out an AI development plan which recommended programming courses to be taught in both primary and secondary schools.
