Kenya's tea farming industry, one of the world's largest, is facing job losses after a court in January ruled against a labor union's attempt to ban tea leaf harvesting machines. Workers fear the machines will take their jobs, while tea farm owners say mechanization will make the industry more productive. Brenda Mulinya has details from Kericho, Kenya.
