Machakos Town Mp Dr. Victor Munyaka has asked Machakos residents not to sell their produce so as to prepare for a tough time ahead if the Government enforces a total lockdown.
“In Ukambani we have been blessed with a good harvest to sustain us if we use it well. We were blessed with a bumper harvest the last season, we should store it well for it not to get aflatoxin so as it can help us during this time the country has been hit by coronavirus, ” he said.
