This is in response to the cancelled talks with maize millers. The Ministry of Agriculture was to pay part of the production cost that will see a 2kg packet of unga reduced to KSh 100. Unga retail prices were to range from KSh 250 for a 5kg packet to KSh 490 for a 10kg packet.
To protect Kenyans from the high expense of living, the government intended to subsidize unga prices for a period of four weeks.
Later this week, negotiations regarding the subsidy agreement are expected to resume.
