According to Linturi, CS Kuria hijacked the idea of importation of Maize. He is clear that the Ministry of Agriculture has not announced any plans to import GMO maize or any time of maize.
According to CS Linturi, farmers in Rift Valley region and other areas are harvesting hence this is not the right time to speak about importation. According to CS Linturi, the Cabinet Secretaries must focus on their dockets.
CS Moses Kuria had caused a lot of confusion in the maize farming areas after he announced of plans to import millions of maize bags in the country. The matter faced serious resistance with most Kenyans terming the move illegal because it could disenfranchise local farmers.
