Bomet Governor, Hon Dr Joyce Laboso has challenged Bomet farmers to embrace technology in their agribusiness activities. The Governor said this during a past agribusiness trade fair hosted by the County Government.

is a move towards the right direction. My administration is determined to prioritize agricultural sector, the platform you elected me on’. Said Laboso
