Government owes Kshs. 1 Billion to farmers in the countryThe Government will in the next one week release Sh1 billion to clear outstanding debts owed to maize farmers, a Cabinet secretary has said. Mr Kiunjuri visited Trans Nzoia and Uasin Gishu counties, where hundreds of farmers lined up to deliver grain to the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB). Farmers are yet to receive payment for maize delivered last season. The farmers among other grievances complained of delays by NCPB in accepting their grain and the high cost of input such as fertiliser.
