Governor Lee Kinyanjui Shares A Touching Story He Leant From His Grandparents

One of the early lessons I learnt from my grandparents revolved around productivity.

The unwritten rule was that when a visitor came to your place, they had to go back with something in the chondo.

If they went back with nothing, this was a very mean home. This meant that milk, pumpkins, arrow roots or sweet potatoes had to be ready round the year.

In a way this has changed greatly, and gifts have become supermarket shopping.

We need to revert to a society of productivity. In our backyards, balcony and homes, we can be part of the solution.

Even when you can afford to buy the food, that kitchen garden can be source of fresh vegetables for the family and one can fill a Chondo for a visitor. This is a culture we should pass on to our children and grandchildren.

We must ask ourselves what we have done to fill the kiondo, every day.

We must reverse the challenge of few producers and many eaters.

In so doing, we shall have fed the nation and liberated our country from the shame of hunger.
