AGRICULTURE CABINET SECRETARY WILLY BETT GRILLED OVER UNGA SAGA

Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Willy Bett has been questioned today by the Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture on the saga surrounding the importation of maize from Mexico.

During the questioning at Parliament buildings here in Nairobi,members of the Committee wanted the CS to explain why it took long for his ministry to import maize as the drought situation has been ongoing for more than six months.

Members also wanted Cs Bett to explain more about the fertilizer that was imported in Kenya that is believed to have affected the quantity of food produce last year.

Bett has defended the government saying that the maize was imported by private sector millers and not the government directly.
