Friday April 19, 2019-President Uhuru Kenyatta has sent out a warning after chairing a Cabinet meeting in State House Nairobi on Thursday.
Through its official Twitter handle, State House indicated that millers had been warned against taking advantage of the ongoing drought situation to hike price of Unga (maize flour).
According to Uhuru, stern action would be taken against those hoarding maize and causing unga price to skyrocket.
"The Cabinet has warned that stern action will be taken against those who will hoard maize and other essential food items," State House tweeted.
Following the meeting, the Cabinet assured that Government will take necessary measures to ensure basic food commodity prices remain stable.
"The Cabinet also urged pastoralist communities to start destocking while animals are still healthy and gave an assurance of State help in restocking when the weather improves," the statement continued.
