Kenyans have been angered after maize flour prices were revised following CS Peter Munya's intervention to suspend all levies imposed on the commodity.
Millers have said that the move will only reduced the price of a 2 kg packet by 2 bob only. They added that the move is so insignificant and it might not be of benefit to kenyans in reducing the price of this essential commodity.
Before the move, a 90kg bag of maize was levied 100 shillings at the border with this bag producing 36 2kg packets after it's milled. Mathematically, removal of the levies reduces the price by 2.7 shillings only.
Heartbroken by the news, Kenyans on social media showed anger with many slamming the government for playing tricks.
"This is an abuse of those of us who celebrated all night long on hearing that the prices of the flour will reduce. Wakae na hiyo 2bob."
"This government is taking kenyans for granted. A 2 shilling reduction on the price of unga and we are all expected to celebrate?"
