Government's stance on Genetically Modified Organisms maize has taken a sudden U-Turn after it unravelled what will take course when the retailing prices of a 2 Kilogram packet of maize flour will drop.
Speaking via the Ministry of Trade, Investment and Industry today the 26th day of November 2022, the Kenyan Government has announced that it will ban the Importation of Genetically Modified Organisms maize when the price of a 2 Kilogram packet of maize flour will drop to Ksh 120.
"This story of GMO is simply a topic that I would not want to engage you in a conversation on. Let me inform you, when the retailing price of maize flour reduces to Ksh 120, you will no longer hear me converse about GMO foods again," CS Moses Kuria divulged.
The Kenyan government has announced that the pivotal reason as to why it arrived at the decision to import Genetically Modified Organisms maize was simply to cushion Kenyans from the ravaging effects of hunger posed by the widely spread drought in the country.
