Migori ASK starts early preparations after three years absence

Migori Agricultural Society of Kenya (ASK) has started early preparation in readiness for the October 2023 event after three years of absence.

Speaking during the first stakeholders meeting at ASK office in Lichota, the Migori Chairperson Mr. George Omune said that they have started early preparation to ensure the show becomes a success after a three year break due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Migori Agricultural show which started in 1980’s as a Harambee show has seen it achieve more status in recent years.

The devolution era of 2013 saw the show elevated from Harambee to a Satellite show and in 2014 the ASK was moved from Migori stadium to a 35-acre site at Lichota in Suna West Sub County.

The new location further elevated the county ASK to one of the six Regional Agricultural Shows in the country.

Omune noted that every stakeholder will be notified in advance to start early preparation to market and prepare logistics for agricultural exhibitions.

“Our ASK show has the regional status, where the neighbouring counties like Kisii, Homabay, Narok and Nyamira come to showcase their products and service”, he said.

“Our neighbours in Tarime Tanzania also visit the county to see the various agricultural produce and technology making it a big event that requires early preparations for its success,” explained Omune.

The official urged all the stakeholders to be readily available if called upon to attend committee meetings for the smooth planning and transition of the show.

ASK Migori Branch Manager Ms. Emily Awuor said that early preparations will help to promote excellence in agriculture, promote and showcase farmers’ produces, and market the county to international levels.

She acknowledged that preparation for the show has started across all the committee boards to enlighten them on each step the ASK board was taking.

Awuor however, urged the stakeholders, exhibitors and farmers to consult with her office in making necessary arrangements for the show event.

Kitale National ASK, Mombasa International Show and Nairobi International Trade Fair are some of the major shows this year that opened their door both to international, local exhibitors and farmers to showcase their products and agricultural technologies.
