09 July 2013, 16:02 Steve Wambugu

The Cabinet Secretary for Agriculture Felix Kosgey has said the government has put measures in place to curb periodic drought in the country. 
Speaking in Nakuru on Tuesday, Kosgey said that periodic drought has particularly affected the arid and semi arid lands which make up more than 80 % of Kenya’s land mass.

He noted that this has resulted to economic and social consequences that have made the government come up with reforms aimed at transforming agriculture into a business and at the same time make it competitive.

He observed that food security remains a priority objective for the nation adding that the national food security is currently stable.

The secretary said that at present, there are adequate food stocks and as at 31st May this year, the maize, beans, wheat and rice stocks in the country were 18 million bags, 235 049 bags, 599 897 bags and 558 613 bags respectively. 

Kosgey said that the government through the Ministry of Agriculture is working on legislation and policy to improve the country’s grain storage for food security and to maximize on income to farmers through the warehouse receipt system.
