Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi cautiones maize farmers against selling their products

Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi has cautioned maize farmers against selling their produce below Sh4,000 for a 90kg bag as set by the government.

Speaking on Monday, the legislator said it would be foolhardy for farmers to sell their maize at throw-away price amid the prevailing high cost of living.

“Don’t try to sell your maize below Sh4,000. Don’t cry about the high cost of living then sell your maize at a throw-away price, be alert,” he said while engaging UDA Uasin Gishu County Chapter Leadership during Tree Planting Day on Monday.

Present were his Moiben counterpart Phyllis Bartoo, nominated MP Joseph Wainaina, and UDA regional manager Paul Kiprop among other officials.

Sudi acknowledged that indeed these are hard economic times but asked Kenyans to hang in there saying things will get better soon.

He reiterated that the Kenya Kwanza government inherited a tattered economy but the William Ruto administration has done immensely well in revitalising it and it’s only a matter of time before things get a lot better.

“I hear people crying about the economy, it’s true, the economy is currently bad. When you see the President travelling from one country to the other, it’s not that he likes travelling or he has nothing to do, he is working at reviving the economy,” Sudi said.

He said in about four months, money will have started trickling in and by next year, things will have improved.

The MP drew parallels between the current dire economic situation with the one during the early years of the Narc government under the late President Mwai Kibaki.

“When the late president Mwai Kibaki took power, the first three years, things were very difficult but Kibaki knew what to do even though he had been in an accident and he revived the economy,” he narrated
