The revelation coincided with the revelation by then Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri who disclosed that over Sh8 billion worth of maize may have gone bad in the National Cereals and Produce Board stores.
The revelation was a smack on the face of the Jubilee Government that put up measures to promote food security.
Food security is part of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Big Four agenda which includes affordable housing, universal healthcare and manufacturing.
The report indicates that for every three Kenyans, one is grappling with severe food insecurity and poor nutrition.
It claims about 20 per cent do not meet the required dietary needs that can sustain a healthy and productive life.
The study recommends that Kenya should prioritize food security policies at county and national levels of governments.
It stated that it is reasonable to view the progress made globally in reducing hunger and undernutrition over almost 20 years.
