Wednesday, March 16, 2022 – President Uhuru Kenyatta has absolved himself from the blame over the high cost of living being experienced in the country due to increased prices of basic commodities, among them fuel.
State House spokesperson Kanze Dena has addressed the rising cost of living in the country, which has seen the prices of essential commodities shoot through the roof.
Speaking during an interview yesterday, Uhuru, through State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena blamed the Russian-Ukraine crisis for the high cost of living in Kenya.
She also attributed the dire economic situation in the country to global inflation.
Dena explained that the increased cost of living is not only affecting Kenyans but the world as a whole.
She further stated that the food crisis could be solved if Kenyans moved away from over-reliance on rain-fed agriculture to irrigated farming in most parts of the country that are highly affected by drought.
“The rising cost of living is not exclusive to Kenya, it is a global phenomenon fueled by numerous external factors, among them the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war which has led to a rise in the global price of petroleum, which is a key factor of production,” Dena stated.
