State should probe possible import of fake rice, bananas
Social media are known to be informative and educative despite other problems it is associated with. They have evolved from social engagement platforms to business platforms. WhatsApp works differently in that members who share a common objective can form a group and engage from wherever each of them is. Social media are sources of information. It is on these sites I came across a clip showing how counterfeit rice is packaged in India. I also saw how bananas are put in a red chemical to ripen quickly and later exported to other countries. I urge the government to investigate and clarify the authenticity of these clips and protect its citizens from diseases associated with bad food including cancer. It is likely Kenya could be a possible destination of such products because we import rice from Pakistan.
