We have done it again! We are indeed very proud to bring you this edition of the Akefema Magazine. I sincerely take this opportunity on my own behalf and on that of the Akefema fraternity to thank the Communications committee for the good job they have done in coming up with this publication despite the odds. This goes a long way to prove that indeed our organization is robust and ripe to move to the next level. Our duty remains the same as envisaged at the formation of the organization.
We at Akefema are always striving to give our farmers and the public a reason to smile every day. It is in this spirit that we welcome you to our third edition Akefema News Magazine. I have no doubt in my mind that this publication will go a long way in educating, informing and entertaining farmers, which forms part of our core business.
This being a bimonthly publication we will always make sure we cover topics of interest to livestock farmers that will add value to their activities and make farming a worthwhile business venture. Agriculture as you are aware contributes a quarter of Kenya’s economy with 3 out of every 4 Kenyan’s relying on agriculture either directly or indirectly it is imperative that we must give due attention and diligence that the industry requires. Once we do this then we can be sure to attain the requisite food security we so crave as a country as well as create employment opportunities for the youth. We believe that with the publication of this magazine we will be able to create a platform where our members will be able to reach out to livestock farmers, engage with various stakeholders to improve their market reach and maximize their profits.
I take this early opportunity to thank our very able communications team for making the publication of Akefema magazine a reality.
Congratulations for a job well done. To the reader we hope this magazine will meet your expectations, inform, educate and also entertain you.
Thank you all and enjoy reading …
