Russia denies exposing Ruto’s administration for selling donated fertilizers.

Published on

It has been reported that the Russian Embassy warned against President William Ruto’s administration selling donated fertiliser because it was suspect, however the Russian Embassy has refuted these claims.

The embassy issued a statement on Friday, September 23, claiming that the false stories that had spread widely online did not come from them.

The Embassy urged Kenyans to double-check the statement’s accuracy before sharing it online.

According to the false assertion, the Russian company Uralchem recalled the fertilizer it had supplied as a retaliatory action.

A day after DP Gachagua reported Ksh3.5 billion in subsidised fertilizer on September 21, reports stating that Ruto’s administration sold donated fertilizer went viral.

He said that the action was taken with the intention of facilitating farmers throughout the planting season and lowering the overall cost of living in the long term.

As part of his inaugural address, President William Ruto announced a reduction in the price of fertilizer from Ksh6,000 per 50 kilogram bag to Ksh3,500 per bag.
