Kenya imports maize from Uganda as grain prices rise
Kenya has increased its maize imports from Uganda, as grain prices rise due to destruction of harvests by the ongoing heavy rains in the country.
In the last two weeks, Kenya has received close to 3,000 tonnes from Uganda through the border points, as heavy rains in the Rift Valley continue to present a threat to the new harvest.
Over the past three months, Kenya has been importing maize from Ethiopia and Uganda. Uganda also sold about 60 tonnes to Kigali last week and 60 tonnes to Tanzania.
