President Ruto promises a drop in maize flour prices

This comes after Azimio leader Raila Odinga asked the government to consider bringing down prices of food commodities, stating that it is a top agenda in the bipartisan talks.

On Friday, the High Court temporarily stopped Agricultural Cabinet Secretary Mithika Linturi's move to import maize from Zambia.

Ruto also mentioned that the protests would not lower food prices, but focusing on development could.

"Protesting from morning to evening with sufurias on your heads won't lower the cost of food commodities. It is only through increased agricultural production that food prices can come down, and it's our work as leaders to help you [Kenyans] improve your farm produce," he said.
