Following the importation of GMO maize into the country by national government, high percentage of leaders blasted Moses Kuria. They Decried the move saying it's aimed at sabotaging the hardworking farmers from the region who are currently harvesting their produce.
However, Moses Kuria has admitted that the government campaigned on the promise to lower the cost of living and ensure no Kenyan dies of hunger. He therefore urged that it is their unanimous and collective primary duty and an irreducible minimum. In addition, he said they will do exactly that as they safeguard the interest of farmers.
Many Kenyan farmers have opined they have many sacks of maize in their stores. Gabriel Oguda revealed Kapenguria MP Samuel Moroto who has a farm in Trans Nzoia where he harvested 1,900 bags of maize currently in his store.
In addition, GMO maize importation by national government also raised many reactions in the country because president William Ruto had provided fertiliser subsidies to farmers so as to maximize enough farm produce in the country.
