SHOCK as UHURU tells MWANGI KIUNJURI to brief RAILA ODINGA over maize importation – RAILA is the man who will authorize Maize importation- Not RUTO

Monday July 12, 2019-Agriculture Cabinet Secretary, Mwangi Kiunjuri, is furious with President Uhuru Kenyatta‘s order of telling him to meet National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga and brief him over maize importation.

 On Wednesday, Uhuru directed Kiunjuri and members of Strategic Food Reserve Trust Fund to meet Raila Odinga and brief him over food security .

Received a briefing from officials of the Strategic Food Reserve Trustee Fund on the food situation in the country with a particular reference to Maize. The officials were accompanied by a section of MPs from Maize producing regions in our country," Raila Odinga said after the meeting. 

However, Kiunjuri refused to meet Raila Odinga arguing that it is only his ministry that can authorize maize importation in Kenya.

Following the meeting, Kiunjuri said that the resolutions on food security can only be made by the ministry of Agriculture.

“Any other body that would like to issue a statement on maize imports cannot do that because the ministry has the final say. Any other organisation has to get information from the ministry,” Kiunjuri said.
