Government subsidized Unga exported to Canada. We are too entrepreneurial!
Kenyan shrewd businessmen have taken their entrepreneurial skills a notch higher and are now exporting the ‘Mexico Unga’ to Canada.
While one cannot get their hands on a packet of Unga back in the country, our foreign brothers are now enjoying the Unga at our expenses.
Interestingly, one packet is going for a whopping $14 equivalent to Sh 1400 in Canada. The maize also has the GoK sticker.
While Kenyans are suffering from lack of ugali, Canadians are having a ball with our ‘Mexican’ flour. Prices of essential commodities, maize included shot up in February never to come down.
The subsidized maize flour that hit supermarket shelves on May 17 was only available for a few days with buyers limited to two packets. And like Kenyans, the Canadian buyers have also been limited to two packets each.
