Mixed Reactions As Agriculture CS Peter Munya Asks Kenyans To Look For Other Alternative For Maize

CS Agriculture Peter Munya sent the internet buzzing after advising Kenyans to look for another alternative to maize.

This comes after the high maize prices were reduced by only 2 shillings, leaving Kenyans confused and in question. According to the CS Kenyans needed other foods that would make their bodies healthy compared to maize because we farmed many types of foods. In addition, he stated that maize was brought by the colonialists to Kenya in the year 1911 and Kenya shouldn't rely on it forgetting what our forefathers ate example sorghum and cassava. His remarks have attracted a series of mixed reactions as a section of netizens online bashed him for allegedly not caring about the citizens. Others claimed that maize was Kenya's staple food and it would be difficult for us to change our diet given the fact that we have been eating it for decades.
