Kenyans now have a sigh of relief after Agricultural Cabinet secretary Peter Munya dangled all levies on maize imports effective on 1st July 2022. This will lower the prices of basic commodities like maize flour and other animal feeds. Cs Munya met several stakeholders in Namanga to address the cry of the Kenyan people regarding the acute maize shortage.

”We want to assure the public that we are working day and night to ensure that the cost of unga comes down” Cs Munya said during a meeting with the stakeholders.
