The Nation Media Group followed up Hon. Peter Munya's supposedly aggressive effort to lower the cost of maize flour and animal feed in the country before the next harvest. The cabinet secretary for the ministry of agriculture, livestock, fisheries and cooperatives Kenya, via his official Twitter page informed Kenyans that he has suspended all levies on imports for maize and animal feed products effective 1st July, 2022. He added that the new measures will help in fastracking the clearance of trucks at the border points where major snarl up has been witnessed.The NMG established some interesting facts. After speaking to the United Grain Millers Association says that the move is so insignificant that it will not have any impact on consumers. It will only cut the price of flour by Kenya Sh 2 for a two-kilo packet that is currently retailing at Kenya Sh 210. The CS is now under fire from Kenyans who expected a sharp reduction of the price.
