Kameme FM radio presenter Katta has finally revealed how his side hustle worth thousands of money finally ended up in premium tears.
On a long post on his Facebook page, Katta has revealed that on last year he decided to try farming as his side hustle. Baring in mind that food is a basic need and everyone must required, he was sure of high profit!
He started with 10 acres farm where he divided into 3 parts. On the first 5 acres he planted potatoes, cabbage on 3 acres and carrots on the remaining 2 acres. After well care of the farm, his products were ready for harvest.
The celebrated presenter said that he met his biggest surprise when selling his products. The prices at the shamba left him very heartbroken.
According to Katta, a king size cabbage was going for Ksh 5, a large sack of carrots for Ksh 400 which was very discouraging. However, potatoes were selling at Ksh 1,500 for the small sack which was a good price.
Seeing that potatoes had a good return, Katta decided to plant them on the 10 acres farm expecting that the same will happen.
But to his surprise, a new potatoes law was passed by the Parliament. The bag of potatoes he was selling at Ksh 1,500 is currently going for Ksh 300. He added that his potatoes are still in the farm awaiting for the price to stabilize.
His cry is to the ministry of Agriculture to intervene on the situation. He requested the government atleast to buy the farm products from the farmers who works tirelessly at a good price adding that the food can be used by the government to donate in regions struck by draught.
Katta also revealed that he better give out the potatoes willingly to those starving than selling them at Ksh 300.
