Karuturi Global CEO Sai Ramakrishna Karuturi at his farm in Gambela.
In 2008, Karuturi acquired a 99 year lease for 100,000 ha in Itang and Jokau districts, with an option for a further 200,000 ha if the company succeeded in developing the first lease area. Karuturi has been unable to come close to developing the first 100,000 ha of land, yet nevertheless the company has illegally cleared the entire 300,000 ha, causing serious destruction to locally protected trees, holy sites, and wild animals and destroying local construction materials and blocking water passage routes.
Earlier this year, Karuturi was convicted of tax evasion by the Kenya Revenue Authority due to transfer pricing within its cut flower operations. The company's flower farms in Naivasha, Kenya have not been operating for several months now, and workers have been protesting over unpaid wages. Investigations by ASO show that Karuturi's flower farms in Oromia, Ethiopia, and its farm in Gambela have also ceased operations, and it appears that Karuturi has even removed its tractors and other farm machinery from its Gambela farm.
