Odinga Pledges a Drop in Food Prices
Posted on Saturday, November 29, 2008 @ 13:25:40 CST by kwpnews


Prime Minister Hon Odinga


Prime Minister Raila Odinga Saturday assured Kenyans that the government was working on modalities to stabilize the soaring price of maize flour within the reach of the common man.

He said a sub cabinet committee formulated last week to look into the matter may soon resolve the maize shortage crisis in a week's time and told the inquisitive crowd which graced his thanksgiving ceremony that prices would come down.

The premier informed the ceremony held at Joseph Kangethe grounds that market forces partly contributed to the increase in prices after unscrupulous maize brokers were found selling their supplies to the millers at exorbitant rates.

He announced that the government had imposed measures to break the cartel and had ordered the middlemen out of the maize marketing chain and instructed the National Cereals and Produce board to directly deal with the millers.

"We have banned the cartel of maize brokers to contain further exploitation of the masses so that we minimize these additional cost and I would even wish the price of the staple food to go as low as 20 shillings if possible" Odinga said.

He at the same time said ODM was more stable than ever after going through a storm adding the differences of opinion among party official should not be misconstrued and perceived to be voices of discontent.

Odinga said the party was still committed to implement her pre election pledges but said the exercise was delayed due to unforeseen circumstances surrounding the post election period which culminated with the inception of an all inclusive government.

He said the party was behind schedule in making the pledges a reality since manifestos of coalition partners were merged and a common document that encompasses policies of different political outfits was developed.

The colorful ceremony attracted several cabinet Ministers allied to ODM although Justice Minister Martha Karua whose Narc Kenya Party was affiliated to PNU conspicuously showed up at the party amid cheers from the crowd.

Ministers Present were Fred Gumo , James Orengo, Paul Otuoma Mohamed Elmi, William Ruto , Musalia Mudavadi and speaker of the national assembly Kenneth Marende.
