The Cabinet Secretary for Trade Moses Kuria has been seen at the forefront in the maize and GMO issues. Recently speaking at a funeral, Kuria warned the farmers against hoarding maize a behavior that he said will force the government to import more maize."If you stop hoarding the maize I know things will get better. We are heading to March and we pray and hope that the rains will come and be sufficient. You have 72 hours to release the maize or the government will import maize from outside the country,'' he said.
In response to this the Cabinet Secretary for Agriculture has informed Moses Kuria that he is the custodian in matters regarding food issues in the country."I am the custodian of how much food we need and how much is the deficit" Agriculture CS Mithika Linturi.
Linturi assured the Kenyans the the maize will only be imported when the assessment on level of need is over. To the farmers he told them not to sell their food and be left with nothing to eat.He further promised to see that the prices of food will be reduced.
This wrangles and oppositions within the government can be ended when each person knows his roles well. What is your say?
