The government says it has released two million bags of cheap maize to millers to help tame rising prices of flour. The grains have been released from the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) under the subsidy flour programme amid stringent vetting conditions to weed out cartels. Strategic Food Reserve board Chairman Noah Wekesa disclosed that registered and operational millers will be allocated the maize after undergoing rigorous vetting. But some of the millers have expressed fears of missing out in the cheap maize due to the scrutiny and are contemplating moving to court.
