Alcohol and cigarettes won’t  be sold at this year’s Nyeri National Agricultural Show at Kabiru-ini grounds. Nyeri ASK Show chairman John Kibira said the show, which starts today and run up to Saturday, will be a drug-free zone. Speaking at the showground on Monday, Kibira said police officers will be deployed to ensure students don’t use drugs.

The show has recorded over 20 new exhibitors, making a total of 120. The theme is “Promoting Innovation and Technology in Agriculture and Trade.” The show will provide farmers with an opportunity to learn new farming methods and technologies such as hydroponics, organic farming and irrigation systems, among others.

 “The team has gathered exhibitors in education, livestock, banking, manufacturing, hospitality, Jua Kali, horticulture, transport among many others to interact and learn from. Everybody is welcome to learn,” he said.
