My dear friends, allow me to think aloud, about what Dr. Ndii appears to be saying...

He appears to be saying that we have hunger issues because farmers can't get a competitive price for their food crops and therefore all that needs to be done is a way to be found for increasing income to farmers.

A quick calculation would imply subsidies. Because, if farmers aren't getting a good price for food crops now, assuming they're operating in a free market, then it's only a government intervention that can do the trick.

Therefore, we are hungry because we have no farm subsidies.

If this is true, then I can guess why @hardwood is clapping.

And I can forgive Dr. Ndii.

If we all didn't have to buy food from supermarkets would we die?

not related to discussion... All I am saying is... there is food somewhere - with a sticker price... at a micro level - if you have money to buy that food.. you will not be hungry. so 2 things can happen...
people (at a micro level) can figure out how to 'get that money'
or the sticker price can be lowered!
Kenya is a country of subsistence farmers who are apparently running away from planting foods that feed the rest of the subsistence farmers for 'Tea' because they want more money. And this 'more' money they are getting is not allowing them to get the foods that they stopped growing.

I guess what Ndii is saying is that tea planters have money to buy food just that those who dont plant what is exported are in hunger



We dont grow what we eat.

But farmers are getting subsidies eg cheap govt fertilizer each year - buying at about 1500 from ncpb instead of market price of 6000? Also zero rated farm inputs and equipment, subsidized seeds.

Cost of farming is too high in Kenya. For example,poultry products from Uganda are cheaper because of lower cost of chicken feed.

Ndii just wants attention. There are other means of declaring with finality what he wants without throwing tantrums on twitter; just change his name. Waititu Baba Yao, Mwangi wa Iria, Kimani Wamatangi all did it. He should just have officially changed his name to David Omondi. That would have been more effective than renouncing a non existent Kikuyu citizenship on twitter.
