Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya this afternoon has suspended Sh100 Maize flour subsidy programme citing that there is inadequate funds from the treasury.
This means that the owners of the millers will now sell their Maize flour at any set price. For the last one week there have been inadequate of maize flour both in supermarkets and kiosks. Citizens have been complaining that it has been costing them miles just to get 2Kg packet of maize floor.
This has been a result since the government ordered subsidy of maize flour at Sh100. People started purchasing maize flour at a higher rate until the management in supermarkets was forced to set limits.
Now once again the government has uplifted the subsidy. The leader of Ford Kenya party Moses Wetangula has termed this as cynical ploy to hoodwink voters support Azimio la Umoja.
"I told you that the KSh100 Unga subsidy was a cynical ploy to hoodwink voters support Azimio. After realizing that voters were not convinced, CS Munya has been instructed to tell the truth. What a shame", Moses Wetangula stated.
