Nairobi - Maize shortage starts to bite as millers complain of dwindling supply from farmers despite a 44 per cent price rise.
The Daily Nation reports that the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) is storing less stocks than the numbers required for Strategic Grain Reserve (SGR)as it currently has only 2.7 million bags.
The SGR meant to create equilibrium between the supply and demand for maize has hardly enough stocks to last the country for a month.
