New fuel levy pushes unga prices up by KES 4


The price of “unga” is likely to be increased by at least KES 4 for a 2kg pack.
Last Wednesday, more than 94 small-scale millers met in Nairobi and agreed to raise the price of the 2kg maize packet from Sh90 to Sh98 owing to the 16 VAT fuel levy effected by Treasury CS Henry Rotich.
Chairman of United Grain Millers Association Peter Kuguru said they increased the price because of the high cost of production.
