Sonko issues stern warning to city traders for inflating price of unga

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has threatened to arrest city traders who will be found selling 2kg maize flour for more than the government recommended retail price of Sh75.

While issuing the warning, Governor Sonko insisted that the directive by the national government must be adhered to by all city traders.

“I’m calling on all maize retailers, be it wholesale or retail shops or supermarkets in Nairobi, to bring down the cost of unga to Sh75 or face arrest and closure of business premises,” Sonko said.

Sonko spoke during the official opening of 2018 Nairobi International Trade Fair at Jamhuri Park.
