The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Farm­ers in the Rift Val­ley have wel­comed the de­ci­sion by the gov­ern­ment to in­crease maize prices at the NCPB to Sh3,000 from Sh2,300 per 90Kg bag. DP Wil­liam Ruto has di­rected the board to im­ple­ment the new prices. Kenya Farm­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion di­rec­tor Kip­ko­rir Menjo said the move will en­able them to make a profit. Two weeks ago, farm­ers (pic­tured) said they would in­cur huge losses if the prices are not raised.
