The former Naivasha member of parliament John Mututho has revealed that the Unga shortage in the country was artificial and it was created by five families in Kenya.

He allegedly directed that the price of the basic commodities in Kenya are done and controlled by those families. The families who have the major companies supplying basic commodities across the country.

A section of Leaders from Meru allegedly point out that the "Families" are from Top people in the Government and others are allies of the Deputy president William Ruto.  The Meru clergy said that they were aware of such circumstance but only waiting for the Presidential intervention.

“The Big five families are manipulating the prices of flour, Milk, Sugar, Oil etc despite Parliament passing the Monopolies Act. It's time the Agriculture CS and energy CS to take action,” he said.

“When I was in Parliament the same cartel was responsible for hoarding the commodity and later releasing it to the market at a high price,” he said.

Mututho further termed the maize shortage artificial and accused cartels of traders and millers of hoarding to control prices.

The former Naivasha MP claimed on Wednesday that the cartels are in cahoots with the government.

He made the claim just a day after President Uhuru Kenyatta said this was not the case and that he would make a major announcement.

According to the critics, the Government knows the people and that is why they prepared the crisis and solved it with the importation of Maize that was stored in South Africa waiting for the crisis.
