We Are Fed Up, Nairobians Off To Streets To Demonstrate Against Cost of Living

The high cost of living is pinching everyone from the rich to the poor in the society. Just few months ago, the cost of maize flour was just 85 shillings per 2kgs in the local supermarkets but it has now trippled to 250 shillings per 2kgs. The cheapest was 190 shillings. This commodity has become too expensive for most Kenyans to afford despite it being the most consumed food in most Kenyan homes. The cost of fuel is is something else, the responsible authorities is blaming it to the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine.

My question still remains, do we really import salt and sugar into the country ? some of these basic commodities are produced locally. Something the government cannot regulate to some extent is the fuel price because it's affected by the happenings around the world. Kenyans in Nairobi have today joined other countries around the world to demonstrate in the streets against high cost of living. Some had sufurias and plates with them showing how frustrated they are with life. The government should come in and do something about this.
