Kenya’s agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mithika Linturi on Monday held bilateral talks with Zambian Agriculture Minister Reuben Mtolo in Lusaka.
Their talks centred on improving agricultural production in both countries, especially in Kenya, since the country is still facing the effects of the prolonged drought.
CS Linturi noted that the Zambian government has agreed to offer Kenyan farmers land for large-scale farming in Zambia.
Kenyan farmers will be required to export their yields back to Kenya to boost our food supply and security.
He applauded the Zambian government for partnering with the Kenyan government as the country aims to achieve food and nutrition security locally and reduce the price of maize flour.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
