Kenya has been battling with hunger which has seen the rise of the maize price in the country, a few weeks ago, farmers were left lamenting after trade cabinet secretary Moses Kuria gave a 48-hour notice to farmers to release their maize to the market.
Today president William Ruto has been in his home county of Uasin Gishu, one of the counties leading in maize production. The president has admitted that the CS did a wrong thing but not that big because the farmers were keeping their maize and when hr gave a short notice they released the maize to the market.
President Ruto has urged farmers with maize to release it so that next year his government can import 10M maize bags which is missing after approximating the available maize. Ruto has also released that chiefs and assistant chiefs will be registering farmers next year, the numbers of acres they have and the measure of fertilizer they need so that the cheap fertilizers will directly get to farmers without falling on the hands of blockers.
