Kenyans to grow maize in Zambia for export, says Minister


KENYAN Agriculture minister Mithika Linthuri has said that his country would be exporting maize from Zambia in a bid to reduce the deficit in his country.

Mr Linthuri said the cost of growing maize in Zambia was cheap and that was why he had resorted to export maize from Zambia.

He said no Kenyan would sleep hungry because his government was closely working with their Zambian counterparts to ensure that the country was food secure.

Mr Linthuri said the Zambian government had also given land to Kenya to grow maize.
