Fresh Headache To Ruto As Over 10 Society Groups Opposes His Gov't On It's Move To Lift Ban On GMOs

William Ruto, the current head of state, authorised the reintroduction of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) into the Kenyan market in order to address issues with food security during a cabinet meeting with Uhuru's departing CSs.

Kenyans from both sides of the political spectrum have reacted to this action in different ways. Over ten civil society organizations and groups have recently come out against the government's decision to repeal the ban on genetically modified organisms, according to recent news reports.

The first opposition to Ruto's changes comes from those who claim that the right legal framework has not been put in place to carry out the mass commercialization and importing of GMOs.

The lifting of the GMO prohibition has alarmed Africans in general as well as Kenyans. According to international assessments, lifestyle and diet are to blame for the United States' declining life expectancy for the first time in a century. Careful considerations should be made to help avoid various repercussions of the government's activity because the entire effects and harm from GMO foods are completely unknown.
