Kenya and Food Security Part 2: 100% Food Security in 5 Years, an Immodest Goal by the New Administration

Emmanuel Wa-Kyendo
Post Date: 21 March 2018

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.
