THE TELEPHONE FARMER AGONY

After planning on how to go about farming ,the engineer was sure that he will manage as a telephone farmer-any way,what was the essence of Watsapp if not to help him in farmind?

Planting went well ,germination was superb and he was happy,after all,seeing all this transformation while on leave away from nairobi was what he had been longing for.

Done with the lave and could only coe on site after every three weeks,he decided as a good kenyan,put all his trust in the “farm manager” whom he was HANDSOMELY paying ksh 6,000 per month! To manage his 5 acre investment of the watermelo(you know what this investment means)

Back in the office,he happily shared with friends what he is currently doing so that he can get more income as he saw featured in some media on Saturday/Sundays

To motivate the workers,he bought a motorbike to be used to reach the nearest town for chemicals and fuel for the pumps.after all he only needed to call the agrodealer and instruct him to give a particular chemical(which he had widely read about on the internet) and pay via mpesa

Week 3,he couldn’t go to the farm as he was ‘’too busy” to get to the farm,so the best option was to use technology-ask the worker to sent current photos of the farm and specifically te crop condition through watsapp.This,he got after some 1hr as the worker had gone to the market and couldnt take the pics immediately.

Looking at the crop,he was not very happy as they appeared wilted but on inquiry,he was assured that with more watering frequency-which meant more fuel,this will be sorted(as jua ilikuwa imewaka saaana).he promptly increased the fuel allocation

………………….week 5

He got the time off to the farm,and what he found out,was hertbreaking-.THE PHOTOS HE WAS RECIEVING WERE OF A NEIGBOURING FARM whose owner is a peasant farmer and NOT HIS,all his investment was a shaddow of what he envisioned!…

His harvest was some few good looking fruits with the majority classified as sekete and ferried by probox buyers.

PAY YOUR WORKERS WELL!!!!
