The Cabinet Secretary Hon Peter Munya today announced the restructuring of the National Food Reserve and Food storage Management.
(i) The government will not directly buy, sell maize or set prices of maize
(ii) The government will no longer purchase, distribute, sell or set prices of fertiliser, seeds or any farm inputs
(iii) Going forward the government will focus on its key role, that of creating an enabling environment for producers and traders to make and execute commercial decisions, while ensuring that commercial interests, especially on imports do not disadvantage local producers and consumers.
CS Munya was accompanied by CAS Dr. Linah Jebii Kilimo, PS Prof. Hamadi Boga and PS Harry Kimtai.
