An analyst says, food is a weapon and if Western multinationals control the food in Africa with GMO, they control the life, control politics.
In the background of this, GMO (genetically modified organisms), a farming technology that promises hardier crops to cope with Africa’s harsh weather conditions is being relentlessly lobbied to African governments by Western multinationals and international institutions as a pill to solve hunger problems in Africa. Kenya recently announced it is placing a ban on all GMO production and this line of thought is supported by arguments that it won’t solve the main problem in Kenya, which concerns food distribution infrastructure.
