Kenyans have got every reason to smile after cabinet Secretary for Agriculture made a major declaration over impartation of maize and animal feeds products.
Taking to his social media pages, Munya announced that his ministry has removed all the taxes on the imports for maize animals feeds effective first of July this year.
"I have suspended all levies on imports for Maize and Animal feed products effective 1st July, 2022." The cabinet Secretary posted on his social media pages.
He added that the initiative is aimed at lowering the price of maize flour and animal feeds in Kenya that is expected to be achieved in the next 90 days.
"The new measures will help in fastracking the clearance of trucks at the border points where major snarl up has been witnessed." The cabinet Secretary added.
This is a good news as Kenyans have been struggling to afford the prices of Maize flour which is currently retailing at more than 150 Kenya shillings in major shops across the country.
