Kenyans can now enjoy their favourite meal after retailers in the central business district started stocking maize flour.

The commodity was readily available at the Tuskys outlet on Kenyatta Avenue, Eastmatt on Tom Mboya Street, and Chandarana in Lavington.

Joseph Karani, an employee at one of the supermarkets, said the maize flour had been in supply since last week and that there had been no shortage.

"Most of the supermarkets in town have restocked since last week. There has been no shortage in the supply," said Karani.

Vivianne Ndegwa, a resident of Lavington, also confirmed that maize flour was in the shops she patronises. She said she goes shopping twice a week and that she has not been restricted on the numbers of packets she could pick.

Everlyne Mwai went to a supermarket last week after work and found plenty of packets of flour. There was no scrambling, as was the case before. Flora Odawa, a resident of Donholm, however, says the flour has been a rare commodity since last week. The neighbouring Tuskys at Greenspan Mall and even Tumaini Supermarket in Donholm didn't have the precious commodity.

"Since Friday last week unga has not been on the shelves of supermarkets in the estate. Many are forced to buy it elsewhere," said Odawa. [Jennifer Anyango and Mercy Odhiambo]
