Maize shortage for Kenyan traders as Tanzania denies export permit

Tanzania has suspended the issuing of export licences to Kenyan traders, which might soon cause maize flour prices to spike to new highs. Due to the nation's maize crisis, unga prices for the first time in the history of the Kenyan market reached the KSh 200 mark. After the government stopped the subsidy programme that allowed it to sell for KSh 100 per 2kg package, the current retail price is roughly KSh 210. A 90-kilogram bag of maize now costs between KSh 5,600 and KSh 6,000 in the market.
