DP Gachagua Optimistic on Unga Prices Reduction After Harvest

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua stated that the cost of unga would continue to decline due to the economy showing positive signs of recovery.

During a consultative forum with deputy governors in Mombasa on Wednesday, Gachagua mentioned that most supermarkets are currently offering unga between Sh159 to Sh155 and would continue to decrease.

He explained that the cost had progressively reduced from Sh230 to Sh160 without any subsidy, and after harvesting in September, they aimed to reduce the cost to about Sh130 and Sh120.

Gachagua emphasized that subsidizing production was more sustainable than subsidizing consumption, which was not feasible.

While two brands had lowered their prices following President William Ruto’s announcement, most maize meal brands still sold for between Sh190-Sh230, with some millers denying reducing their prices.
