Among the directives given by the President is ensuring that the newly established Tea Board of Kenya jointly with other stakeholders sanctions immediate elections in all tea factories so as to enable tea farmers to freely elect their Board members within sixty (60) days from the date of the Executive Order with the objective of securing a transparently managed tea sub-sector.
