William Ruto claims that the government has reduced the price of unga because elections are approaching.

The Ministry of Agriculture has temporarily suspended unga prices. Ruto stated that the price reduction is due to the upcoming general election. Once the announcement was made, Kenyans went on a shopping spree for this valuable house commodity.

According to Kenya Kwanza Alliance Presidential Candidate William Ruto, the government has reduced the price of Unga due to the upcoming elections.

In the next four weeks, the government will reduce the price of 2KG maize flour from KSh 230 to KSh 100.

“The Ministry of Agriculture shall subsidize the price of maize flour produced/sold by the miller for a period of four weeks from the date of this contract,” the Ministry of Agriculture states.

Ruto stated that the government had blamed the increase in prices on the war between Russia and Ukraine and demanded to know why the costs had been reduced while the war was still ongoing.

“Because elections are approaching, the government wishes to reduce the price of unga. The same government initially blamed the high prices on the Ukraine-Russia war, which is still ongoing, so why did you leave Kenyans to suffer?” Ruto posed. Ruto and his Kenya Kwanza brigade have been criticizing the government for the skyrocketing prices of basic commodities.

The team has promised to lower food prices in rallies if elected to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta on August 9.

Kenyans are in a frenzy over rising unga prices.

Kenyans took to social media after unga prices nearly doubled in recent weeks. In many Kenyan households, ugali is considered a stable meal; increasing its price was equivalent to denying a common meal to a common family.

Initially, some brands cost between KSh 90 and KSh 120, while others cost more. Kenyans were unable to remain calm following the increase.

Kenyans are going on a shopping spree to buy the commodity in bulk so that it will last them several days.

Kenyans rejoice at the temporary waiver
