Tobacco farmers in Kanungu District have been warned against associating with mushrooming tobacco companies in the district.
While addressing tobacco farmers in Nyamirama Sub-county in Kihiihi Town Council yesterday, the deputy Resident District Commander, Mr Jjuko Kasita, said they have received a lot of complaints from farmers over non-payment by one of the companies that buys their tobacco.
