Kenyans are currently facing a very difficult economic time. The government, through the cabinet secretary for agriculture, Peter Munya, said the shortage of maize flour was due to a shortage of maize in the country. The price of a 2 kg packet of maize flour currently sells for Shs 220 and Kenyans feel really low.
However, rising prices for some basic commodities have raised eyebrows among Kenyans. The cost of tissue paper sold for SH 15 is not sold for SH 40 and alcohol soap has also increased significantly.
Cooking oil can no longer be affordable as one liter of cooking oil now sells for SK 400. Everyone is politically focused, but no one talks about the price of food. The big question is what is causing the rise in food prices. We used to blame the COVID-19 epidemic, but probably after that, the president must do something to rescue the Kenyans who are affected economically.
