Through the firm’s  Chief Executive for East Africa Jacques Theunissen, KFC will now begin the process of identifying local producers of the product before proceeding to the next level of procurement.

KFC has been trending on Tuesday after it confirmed running out of chips due to lack of potatoes which they usually import from Egypt.

According to the firm, the shortage has been caused by COVID-19 complications which have caused delays in shipment of the product. KFC confirmed the arrival of their first consignment on Tuesday.

It is due to the shortage that the firm introduced alternative combinations including Ugali.

“Fam it was truly a Furaha December. Mlikula sherehe with your KFC faves. Ya’ll loved our chips a little too much, and we’ve run out. Sorry! Our team is working hard to resolve the issue. In the meantime here are some SWAP options for combo meals if you are craving our Kuku.” Said KFC
