Ruto’s Plan to Revive the Economy

About the economy the head of state  says his government has done tremendously well in agriculture and there were plans to plant more palm trees and sunflower along the coastal regions and Lake Victoria.

“We are the only country that imports that much food. Why? Because we haven’t paid as much attention to agriculture. There are things we are importing today which we should not be importing (cement, steel, furniture) when we can manufacture locally. We shouldn’t be there but we are spending huge amounts of money to import when we can manufacture them locally,” Ruto said.

For maize Production Ruto says Kenya has realized good harvest with 40% growth.

“I decided that I’m going to do what we have to do to change the trajectory on our staple food. Today, we are producing more in terms of maize, which is our staple food, in fact, my plan is that by next year, we shouldn’t be importing maize into Kenya, we should be producing enough,” Ruto said.
