Food Affordability Is A Bigger Threat To Food Insecurity In Kenya Compared To Food Availability.

Post Date: 18 April 2018

Food security is a rather sensitive yet inevitable issue to probe discourse in Kenya today, especially with the increase in hunger and recurrent droughts in the country after 2008 to date. The gross produce of the dominant cereals and other food crops has with time reduced or experienced sharp shocks in consecutive years clouded by several factors ranging from high prices of inputs for farmers to droughts, climate change among other related issues. The question however, that every Kenyan consumer and farmer is asking is where the problem really is and if there’s hope in achieving a food secure country or at least mitigating against chronic hunger for the most affected, thus ensuring access to basic food requirements for all.

This is the second in a two part series wherein I explain why prioritizing food security is important and then argue that the Administrations’ goal may be a little too ambitious for one election cycle. 


The new administration intends to take action on the National concerns that are healthcare, food security, manufacturing and housing. (Olick & Kisika, 2018). According to the pronouncement, Kenya will be made 100% food secure in 5 years. I will analyze a food security index compiled by ‘the Economist Intelligence Unit’ and then advocate for institutionalized, sustained efforts towards bolstering the nations’ food security.


Food Security is a multidimensional issue and deserves a central place in national development plans.

The education sector plays a major role in Kenya’s development strategy in developing the human resource of the country which is the basis of wealth creation of the country. To build an educated and skilled human resource, Kenya needs to invest in education and encourage innovation to provide a foundation for sustainable development in the long run. Article 43 (1) (f) of the Constitution of Kenya 2010, under the Bill of Rights on Social and Economic Rights of the Kenyan populous, states that every person has the right to education.
