More Headache For Kenyans As Shollei Reveals When The Cost Of Living Will Go Down

National Assembly deputy speaker Gladys Shollei has come out to tell Kenyans that they need to be patient for a little longer before the Kenya Kwanza administration sets things right as far as the economy is concerned. The legislator who was elected as the Woman representative for Uasin Gishu in the August 9 general elections said that it may take over three months before the high cost of living is brought back to normal.

In her statement the deputy speaker said that Kenyans will have to hold on tight for the next 3 to 12 months before they see the fruits of the Kenya Kwanza administration. During this time she asked Kenyans to maintain patience.

"We will have to tighten our belts, it's going to be a difficult time for the next 100 days to 12 months but Kenyas are going to see the fruits of some of the decisions in a year's time," Shollei told KTN News in a Tuesday interview.

"We must preach to Kenyans to be patient, the pain is not going to go away immediately." She added.

The legislator during the interview defended the president for doing away with the food subsidy and maintained that their administration is currently focused on providing fertilizer to the people. By improving food production the country will be able to sustain it's food production.

"We are facing farming challenges, the price of unga is still high, but the long-term decision is to say 'let's subsidise fertiliser, increase the production then the price will naturally come down. it's a new move to impact the livelihoods of people and the impact is not going to be instant," Shollei said.
