High prices as subsidized fertilizers released by Ruto's Government are claimed to be held by cartels

Fred Ikana, a member of parliament from Shinyalu has expressed his outrage over reports that farmers in his region did not receive fertiliser subsidies. The lawmaker asserted that cartel participation had caused problems with the subsidized fertilizers.

The MP now wants President Ruto's administration to take tough action against the alleged cartels suspected of keeping the discounted fertilizer.

According to Fred Ikana, President Ruto's administration has made available adequate fertilizer for all farmers. The MP also threatened individuals reportedly withholding fertilizer, saying they will soon be in trouble with the law.

"Fertilizer has been released to farmers with government subsidies, but I'm quite enraged that a cartel is keeping it out of their hands. I want to issue a warning to the cartel and request that the security services step in and apprehend those responsible for sabotaging government interventions." Fred Ikana Shinyalu MP, remarked.

According to reports, a significant number of farmers still do not have access to the fertilizer, which costs Sh 3500, and certain shady gangs are thought to be responsible for the shortage.
