President William Ruto has today lifted ban on Genetically Modified Crops in the country after 10 years since it was suspended by former President Uhuru Kenyatta's administration.
The move implies that Kenyan farmers will now be allowed to cultivate and import food crops and animal feeds produced through biotechnology method.
The move is expected to improve international trade between Kenta and other nations which produce such products and export them.
The move has attracted mixed reactions from Kenyans especially the political class with some lauding while some critisizing. Taking to his social media pages, Narok senator on his side has faulted the move predicting that it will result to more problems.
According to him, the set standards will not be followed and this could lead to production and importation of harmful products.
"Interesting times Ahead welcome GMO, let me see how many will remain organic” Sen. Ledama posted on his social media pages.
