The Kenya Ministry of Agriculture has said that the country’s food security is stable following good maize harvests from the long rains.
--According to its latest food security report, the ministry notes that as at September 30, Kenya had 17.3 million maize stocks up from 16 million bags at the end of August.
--This number is, however, expected to increase since harvesting in parts of Central, Western, Rift Valley and Northern parts of Eastern provinces is still going on.
--Farmers had in their custody 10.3 million bags at the end of last month, up from 9.6 million in August. The increase was largely attributed to a good harvest.
