The incumbent Head of State President William Ruto held a cabinet meeting with Uhuru's outgoing CSs whereby he approved the re-introduction of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) into the Kenyan market inorder to counter food security problems.

This move has sparked mixed reactions from Kenyans across both sides of the political divide. On the recent news, over 10 Civil Society Groups and Association have now opposed government’s lift of ban on GMOs.

This is the one first resistance against Ruto's reforms as they argue that proper mechanisms have not been enacted to execute mass commercialization and importation of GMOs.

Lifting the ban on GMOs has worried Kenyans and Africans in general. According to global reports, for the first time in a century, life expectancy in the USA is dropping because its related to lifestyle and diet. The full effects and harm from GMO foods are completely not yet known therefore careful deliberations should be done to help avoid diverse effects of the government's action.
