The CS said some of the seedlings are at various stages of development. At the Coast, the seedlings are produced at a Government farm in Mtwapa, under the Agriculture Food Authority, and in Bura, Tana River County, under the National Irrigation Board. “The best way to ensure the common mwananchi benefits from Government is through this kind of intervention,” said Kiunjuri.
