Tuesday, January 3, 2023 – Agriculture CS Mithika Linturi has said that the price of maize flour will come down by the end of February 2023.

Speaking to the media, Linturi stated that the government of President William Ruto was going to import maize to ensure that there was enough of the commodity.

The CS said that the government was making the move because if it did not import maize, some Kenyans were going to die of hunger.

Linturi said that the importation of maize was a short-term mitigation measure, as the government plans to have farmers grow more maize in the long term.

“We are going to import maize and rice. We are not doing it because we want but the projections are so bad that if we do not do it, our people will die for lack of food. And I want to commit by the end of February the cost of unga could have come down,” Linturi stated.

His remarks come after Ruto said that his government is focused on supporting farmers to produce more food in a bid to reduce the cost of food.

Speaking while ushering in the new year in Mombasa, the Head of State said that already the government has secured several tonnes of subsidized fertilizer, which will be available to farmers in January 2023.

“The permanent solution towards matters of reducing our cost of food is not a subsidy, it is to support our farmers to produce more food,” Ruto said.

  1. Daily Post you are doing exactly what the media should do. You normally highlight issues affecting mwananchi.
    Back to the point,Infact as parents of Mbooni Boys we are very bitter after getting information that former Principal Mathew Mutiso is finding his way back to this school. He should stay at Shimo La Tewa High and retire.
    During his era at Mbooni Boys, parents had asked the Anti-Corruption watchdog to investigate the principal, who embezzled thousands of money from the school budget.
    He used to withdraw funds irregularly and divert the attention of BOM and parents.
    He should not be allowed to come back to this school because since he is about to retire, he will mismanage and steal funds.
    During that time,Mutiso was one of the suppliers and had fleeced parents.
    The principal had on a number of occasions used the school’s Local Purchase Order (LPO) to fuel his personal car from a petrol station
    Following a number of complaints, officers from the Ministry of Education were requested to visit the school to investigate issues raised by the parents and teachers.
    He was later transferred unceremoniously.
    There is need for efficient and effective management and running of schools.
