JUST IN: Cabinet Lifts 10 Year Ban on Genetically Modified Food and Animal Feeds

New just in from NTV Kenya has revealed that the Genetically Modified Foods that had been banned back in 2012 are now legal in Kenya. The ban on importation and growing of the modified food and animal foods including white maize.

The Cabinet meeting was chaired by President William Ruto. The move by the cabinet now assures farmers that they can grow genetically modified maize.

However, the move by the government has its implications which includes difficulty in exporting any Kenyan farm products that have any ingredients from the above mentioned crops.

Additionally, the Genetically Modified Foods and animal feeds will flood Kenyan markets where it will be almost impossible for Kenyan farmers to find market for their farm produce. This means that farmers and traders will have to revise their market prices regularly to ensure that they are almost lower than those that are imported into the country.

The move is also somehow advantageous to Kenyans since more food will be available for human consumption. More details will be shared concerning the development.
