Kenya and Zambia Strike Maize Deal for Food Security


Kenya and Zambia agreed to a deal that will help Kenya get more maize by allowing Kenyan farmers to grow maize in Zambia and send it back to Kenya.

This will help make sure Kenya has enough food.

The Agriculture Cabinet Secretary, Mithika Linturi, said that this deal will make maize cheaper in Kenya, and that farmers will be able to sell it for less than they can now.

Zambian farmers will also benefit from the deal because they can sell their extra maize to Kenya.

Linturi told Kenyan farmers not to hold onto their maize because they will have to sell it for less money later.

The deal will last for six months, and Kenya hopes it will help them get enough maize.

Right now, a 2-kg packet of maize flour costs between Ksh185-250.
