According to the Deputy Governor Stanley Kenei , the rain season is ongoing and farmers are still in a reaping season. Farmers have already voice their concerns with NCPB, as they look for stores to keep their produce.
The deputy governor is also urging NCPB to renovate and mend their maize driers, “Many cereals board driers are old and can;’t function properly. We urge the national government to avail money so that they can be mended or they can buy new ones which will benefit farmers,” he said.
However, Kenei said that the County government has opened stores where farmers can keep their maize in every sub county. He said they held talks with the Agriculture Ministry and NCPB, to allow farmers to sue the stores.
“We are waiting for an agreement by the cereals board so that farmers can use them. The maize will be dried at the stores and NCPB will check the state of the maize and buy,” Kenei
