    Kenya Kwanza MP and Senator opposes GMO

    Published on

    Didmus Barasa, a member of parliament for Kimilili, has joined the ranks of those who are opposed to the legalization of GM crops in Kenya.

    Longtime President William Ruto ally Barasa has stated clearly that he does not approve of the introduction of foods containing GMOs.

    A day before, another President William Ruto friend, Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei, had spoken out against the government’s intentions to purchase 10 million bags of maize.

    In his opinion, farmers would lose money on their agricultural input investments if genetically modified maize was allowed into the nation.

    Ruto’s government has high expectations that GMO foods can help ease famine in Kenya, despite heated disagreements on the subject.
