Agriculture CS Hon Peter Munya has said that the Kenyan government has not banned maize imports from Uganda. CS Munya has clarified that Kenya is trying to ensure consumer safety, calling on EAC trading partners to ratify the sanitary and phytosanitary standards on their produce. He was speaking during the handover of the reports on Cotton and Pyrethrum Sub-Sectors Revitalization Strategy at a Nairobi Hotel.
The CS said that Potato Regulations are now fully in force, to ensure farmers get a fair price for their produce. To end farmers & traders exploitation, CS Munya has called on the police, the Nairobi Metropolitan Services and the county governments to ensure that all packaged potatoes adhere to the 50kg rule.
This he said, will ensure farmers and traders are not taken advantage of by middlemen.
