Yatta kwavonza residents have been warned against selling farm produce at throwaway prices as harvesting season begins.

“It is shocking that the same farmers who have been buying 1 kilograms of greengrams at Sh250 not long ago can sell their produce at throwaway prices”

Speaking exclusively with Hopkin Reporter, yatta kwavonza MCA Hon Mark Kitute Nding’o encouraged his electorates to store their produce for future use.

“The farmers must realize that selling their produce is not sustainable and soon they may start experiencing food scarcity, people must be careful not to exhaust their food reserves,” said Nding’o.

Hon Nding’o was speaking during distribution of relief food from state ministry of East Africa Community, Arid and Semi Arid Lands and Regional Development headed by Cabinet Secretary HE Penina Malonza at Kiusyani market in Kitui Rural Sub County on Thursday, 11 January.

Residents of Kitui Rural Sub County received relief food totaling 2,000 bags of both rice and beans. This is to cushion the majority of whom are peasant farmers after their maize crops were sunk by excess rain water witnessed from El Nino downpour.
