Agriculture Ministry warns traders against hiking flour prices

The Ministry of Agriculture has warned millers against hiking maize flour prices.

Speaking at the Galana irrigation scheme on Wednesday, Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Willy Bett said the Government was buying maize for Sh3,200 per 90kg bag yet millers were getting the same for a much cheaper price.

Bett explained that most millers are buying maize at around Ksh2,700 so the cost of flour should never go beyond Ksh115.
