"We have lot of surplus maize and rice which National Food Reserves Agency (NFRA) cannot afford buy," Agriculture, Food Security and Cooperatives minister Christopher Chiza told The Guardian in exclusive interview recently. "Our capacity is to buy 200,000 metric tonnes...but we are doing our best to ensure that we get a market for the maize and rice," he said. " To start with, WFP has agreed to buy at least 200,000 tonnes from NFRA in phases...they will start with 60,000 tonnes and then purchase more thereafter," he explained. "We commissioned NFRA to buy 200,000 tonnes at 500/- per kilo. This is the best price so far and the galas that we have cannot accommodate more than this," he added. "WFP will buy maize from NFRA and hence create space for the agency to buy more maize from the farmers," he went on to explain. "In fact, we have given the go ahead to NFRA to borrow at least 20bn/- from CRDB bank for buying the grains," the official noted. As for Kenya buying maize and rice from Tanzania, he said Kenya also had good harvests but with time they might still need addition maize and rice. "We sealed a deal with South Sudan to allow our traders to sell maize and rice there," Chiza said. "Already 1000 tonnes have been sent partially as food relief and partially for sell," he added. "Also, our Embassy in Democratic Republic of Congo is discussing with the government there to allow our traders to sell there," he said.
