Prices of basic commodities have started to go down.
Yesterday, during a church service, deputy president Rigathi Gachagua talked about the economic trends in Kenya.
He stated that the government is looking for long term solutions to deal with the agony that the economy has brought on Kenyans.
Dp Gachagua stated,”Prices of basic commodities have started to go down and that is a good sign. The price of maize flour is going down, as well as that of cooking gas.”
“We are looking for long-term solution. We will not lower prices for one day just to please people. We will be looking for long term solutions. We will provide affordable fertiliser and prices of food will go down. Just give us a few months and you will see the changes,” he added.
On the other hand, president Ruto warned of the impending effects the drought is about to bring, unless the government deals with climatic change.
He said,”Climate change is a problem we must address because it has a direct impact on the economy.”
President Ruto also stated that inorder to address this, he is committed to working for the people of Kenya in all regions.
He said,”We will work for the people of Kenya in their entirety without looking at who they voted for or what regions they come from.Just give us a little bit of time and things will get back on track.”
President Ruto further stated that he did not succeed in his presidential bid because someone interfered with the results.
He added that for now he is focused on dealing with the economy and the current adverse effects of climatic conditions.
President Ruto said,”We did not succeed because somebody interfered with the plans. I don’t want to delve into that. Since we have lost a lot of time, we must hurry up and the minimum mega dams we will build will be 100.”
