President William Ruto has said the Government is determined to end the food crisis in the country.
He said overreliance on rain-fed agriculture had perpetuated the cycle of food shortage.
The President said the Government will build more dams across the country, in addition to providing subsidised fertilizer and other inputs to farmers.
“We spend Ksh 200 billion to import food; the funds can be used to help our farmers to increase food production,” he explained. “We will use the money to construct more dams.”
The President spoke today at AIC Kitui Township, Kitui County.
The Head of State also asked security agencies to act swiftly and end conflicts in the area.
