Today, the Agricultue CS Mwangi Kiunjuri appeared before the National Assembly’s Agriculture committee.

The CS said there is maize coming from Tanzania and Uganda but the quantity flowing in isn’t enough, hence the need to source for maize from COMESA region. This is meant to bring down the price of maize flour in the country.

He stated that the government will not import maize from Mexico this year, “Even if we were to import maize from Mexico, it would take 47-60 days and another 136 days to offload the maize from the ship at the Port of Mombasa,” he said.
