Crack Experienced In Ruto's Cabinet After Mithika Linturi Told Moses Kuria This

The cabinet secretary for agriculture Mithika Linturi has come out to respond to Moses Kuria's directive to farmers that they should sell their maize to milling companies within 72 hours. Mithika Linturi has however come out to disagree with Kuria after consulting with the council of governors. Linturi said that he is in charge of determining the amount of food needed to feed the people and went ahead to ask farmers to ignore Kuria's orders.

“I am the custodian of how much food we need and how much is the deficit. Hold your horses because I want to give you a position that is ready to defend. I will give a more comprehensive report on the national food status at a later date when I have all the data. Relax, you will have food,” the CS said.

The CS went ahead to state that farmers can not be forced to sell their produce but instead asked them to sell the surplus if they have any.

“You cannot be forced to sell your produce. I ask farmers, those who have surplus, don't sell everything until you have nothing to eat." Linturi added.

This marks the first crack in Ruto's cabinet ever since they took office over a month ago. The cabinet secretaries have never disagreed and this has marked the first disagreement and it is unhealthy for Ruto's government. If this continues Ruto may have to work with a crippled cabinet which may prevent him from achieving his goals.
