NEWS– President-elect William Ruto has promised to announce new fertiliser prices next week, after he is sworn-into office.
Speaking during a church service in Meru County on Sunday, the incoming president said he held a 3-day talk with stakeholders in the agriculture sector.
“We have many tea farmers, and the price of fertiliser is now around Ksh 6,000. I have held talks with people from the Ministry of Agriculture and I will announce new fertiliser prices that will be subsidised next week,” he said.
Ruto told Meru residents that his government is on a journey to reform the agriculture sector from next week.
Additionally, the president-elect said Kenyans should expect a drop in the price of Unga since fertiliser will be subsidised.
The prices of Unga went high in August after the Government ended its subsidy scheme with millers that started in July.
