Tobacco commission to introduce e-ticketing


The Tobacco Commission (TC) has announced that it is considering the introduction of e-ticketing of tobacco marketing to replace physical auctioning on the floors.

The move, according to TC chief executive officer Kayisi Sadala, to enhance transparency and fairness in the tobacco market. The resolution follows a month after Farmers are seeking the High Court for an injunction against the implementation of the Tobacco Industry Act, while also protesting the system of selling tobacco which was happening in the absence of the tobacco growers.

While the system was amended weeks ago, Sadala told The Nation newspaper that the e-ticketing initiative will be useful especially during the coronavirus pandemic.

Sadala said under e-ticketing, sales take place in real-time without room for discussion and collusion among buyers, thereby reducing market distortions and bringing fairness.
