Leader says Dominion Farms' agribusiness project has not benefited locals

“Why communities likely to be exploited in land acquisitions”
Siaya Governor Cornell Rasanga is on the warpath...Rasanga was quoted as saying Dominion Farms, an American company carrying out commercial farming in Siaya County’s Yala Swamp, should prepare to leave on expiry of its lease agreement. According to Rasanga, Dominion Farms has failed to uplift the lives of local residents despite being allocated thousands of acres of land formerly held in trust by the defunct county council of Siaya and Bondo. “This is the only major investor in the county and despite promising the community goodies, he has instead subjected them to poverty and intimidation. We are worse off than before,” Rasanga was quoted as saying. Dominion Farm’s 25-year-old contract was signed 13 years ago.
