Raila Odinga blasts government over GMO maize import plans, says Ruto is a puppet of foreign forces

21st November, 2022

Former prime minister Raila Odinga has hit out at the government over its plans to allow the importation of GMOs into the country over the next six months. Raila in a statement issued today accused the government of serving international interests at the expense of Kenyans. He said that allowing GMO imports into Kenya will expose Kenyans to health hazards besides hurting local farmers with the cheap imports. Raila's hard-hitting statement comes on a day that north rift farmers have asked the government to rescind its decision to allow imports of GMO maize to the country. They said the move is coming at the wrong time when farmers are harvesting their produce.
