Ahmednasir Abdullahi, a local attorney, has alleged details about the controversial ship carrying maize that has docked in Mombasa. The docking of the ship has raised questions as to why it docked a few days after cabinet secretary for trade and industry Moses Kuria announced that the government would import GMO maize to alleviate food shortages.
Makau Mutua, a spokesperson for Azimio, asserted that the rapid shipment of ten million bags was the result of cartels coordinating with state officials.
He further questioned why the action was taken prior to the government's publication of an official gazette notice.
Attorney Ahmednasir Abdullahi, a close ally of the president, refuted his claims.
Ahmednassir asserted that the corn shipment was purchased from South Africa, and the transaction was finalized while Cyril Ramaphosa was visiting the country.
"The Government of South Africa sold maize to the Government of Kenya." When President Ramaphosa was last in Nairobi, a deal was reached. Nonetheless, you raise an extremely valid point: "This is what Kenyans expect the opposition to do," Ahmed Nasir clarified.
