"This is Mockery" Kenyans Disappointed as it Emerges That Maize Flour Price Will Reduce By Sh2 Only

Kenyans online have expressed their disappoinment with the government after details emerged that Maize flour price will reduce by Kshs 2 only after Cabinet Secretary (CS) Munya's intervention.

In a report via Nation, United Grain Millers Association, a body comprised of small and medium millers, now claim that the move by the Agriculture CS to suspend all levies imposed on imported maize will only have an insignificant effect on the current price of maize flour.

According to the association, Munya's move will only lower the price of a 2Kg packet of maize flour by Kshs 2. The body claimed that imported maize is levied at Kshs 100 per 90Kg-bag, which produces 36 packets of two kilos, and thus waiving the levies only cut the cost by Kshs 2.7.

The new prices will be effective from July 1st.

Kenyans online expresses their disappoinment

The report irked Kenyans online who expressed their disappoinment with the government, particularly CS Munya, for giving them hope of reduced cost of living only to slap them with an "insignificant" reduction.

Majority termed the move as a mockery to Kenyans who are battling the high cost of living.

"This is an insult to Kenyans. How can you increase a packet of flour from Kshs 100 to Kshs 212 then reduce it by Kshs 2?" Posed one Kenyan.

Below are some of the sampled reactions (screenshots):
