"I'm a Worried Man" Manyora Says on Recent Moves by Ruto's Government

Political Analyst Herman Manyora has claimed that he is worried of the trajectory the country is taken if the move by President William Ruto's government and in particular the issue surrounding importation of maize is anything to go by.

According to Manyora, it is unfortunate for the government through the Trade, Industry and Investment Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria to 'threaten farmers' that they ought to stop hoarding maize, if not the government will go ahead and import maize.

Speaking with Spice FM on Monday morning, the University of Nairobi lecturer held the view that importing maize would be detrimental to the farmers in North Rift and Western Region and who are currently harvesting maize.

"The fellows in government seem not to have prepared to govern. If you look at people speaking on that issue, how can you give farmers 72 hours to sell their maize. Where will they sell? How do you sell what is being harvested now. It is tragic since we seem in a hurry to import GMOs."

"When a country is where we are, you need a firm hand, someone in control and men and women to help you run government. I am not seen the government in control, and I am worried because as a Kenyan, I am not seeing anybody seeming to know that things are bad. Look what Kuria is saying, Linturi is silent, Mudavadi is saying different thing the Head of Civil Service is also saying another thing and the president is there. They are doing things casually," posed Manyora.
