Image result for Kenyan farmers say imports won't end food crisisKenyan farmers have dismissed the importation of maize to stabilise the rising prices of flour as a scheme to flood the local market with cheap produce.

The farmers instead asked the government to implement agricultural policies that will motivate them to increase crop production to end the recurrent food crisis.

Chairman Trans Nzoia Maize and Livestock Association, Andrew Rotich said dependence on maize imports to curb the current food shortage is a clear indicator that the government is not concerned about the welfare of farmers.

The farmers attributed the maize shortage to disease outbreak and other factors such as substandard farm inputs.
