President William Ruto has on Sunday revealed plans by the government to restock Lake Victoria so as to reduce the cost of living in the country.
Speaking from Migori, the Head of State noted that an alternative to maize production is fishing which is also a staple food among Kenyans.
“We have to find ways to deal with the cost of living. We have to produce more food to address the cost of living. We will give fertilizer to the farmers.
