Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya On Tuesday, June 28 announced a raft of measures the government would take in order to caution Kenyans against the high price of unga. Munya said that the government would suspend charges on import levies on maize effective from Friday 1st July. According to SC Munya, this measures were aimed at reducing the price of maize flour for the next three months before the next harvest.

But as it turns out to be this may be just a drop of water in the ocean as it may not cause any meaningful change in the price reduction. According to United Grain Millers Association (UGMA) chairman Ken Nyaga, the removal of the levies was insignificant.

The Kenyan Millers asked the government to be more serious if they aimed at making a meaningful reduction to make the price of unga more friendly to majority of Kenyans. Kenyan Millers warned that the measures adobted would only reduce flour proces by KSh 2 only therefore Kenyans would continue to pay over KSh 200 for a 2kg packet of maize flour.
