The announcement by the government to lift the ban on genetically modified organisms (GMOs), rubbed Kenyans the wrong way.
Deputy President Wiliam Ruto is on record for saying that the government was considering the decision to improve food security.
The DP has urged Kenyans to embrace technology to be at par with the rest of the world in revolutionizing agriculture.
In his speech at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies during the opening of the National Bio-safety Conference, Ruto likened GMOs to the entry of Safaricom mobile money transfer M-pesa, which was almost rejected.
