Most residents in Mombasa and Coast region are yet to get the cheap sh.100 maize flour two weeks after government issued a directive.
A spot check by Baraka FM Reporters in Mombasa,Kilifi and Kwale showed that unga is still being sold between sh. 120-sh.250.
Listeners who called Baraka FM on-air and tagged sentiments on Facebook, claimed shopkeepers have been turning them away when they request to buy subsidized maize flour as directed by the government.
According to a resident in Rabai Constituency, Kilifi County, some shopkeepers refuse to sell unga to customers who question them on the prices.
‘ Ukisema unataka unga ya mia, unaambiwa nenda kwa duka next( If you want cheap unga, go to the next shop’, he claimed.
However, a few residents admitted to buying maize flour at sh.100 after much hassle.
