Former IEBC Commissioner Abdi Guliye attends the State House investor event where President Ruto engaged milk industry stakeholders.
Abdi Guliye, the former Independent and Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioner was on Wednesday pictured attending a key event at State House, Nakuru.
The ex-commissioner took a front seat at the function where President William Ruto was engaging milk industry stakeholders on a wide range of issues.
Guliye was flanked by Livestock Development Principal Secretary Jonathan Mueke and Ruto’s Economic Advisor David Ndii.
However, the State House did not disclose the capacity under which the former IEBC commissioner attended the meeting.
President Ruto addressed a few dairy farmers during the conference, which aimed to modernize the industry to increase competitiveness and expand prospects for value-added work at a time when the head of state has emphasized the importance of agricultural productivity to his economic strategy.
Guliye was actually granted a front-row seat head of lawmakers and other officials who attended the occasion.
Guliye actively participated in the event which resulted in the government’s decision to give 650 coolers to farmers via cooperative groups.
In the new government plan, cooperative societies will be connected to processors in an effort to raise the quantity, caliber, and cost of milk.
Guliye was among 3 IEBC officers who declared Ruto as duly elected President while four others, popularly known as the Cherera four dissented.
At the time, the opposition accused the Guliye team led by Chair Wafula Chebukati of colluding with UDA to declare Ruto as the President-elect.
