A section of Rift Valley MPs have threatened to impeach Trade CS Moses Kuria over the decision to allow the importation of GMO maize.
Addressing the media on Tuesday, the MPs led by Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei protested the importation of maize, demanding that the Trade ministry halts the process immediately.
"As MPs from maize-producing regions, we seek to know the reason as to why ships are already docking in Mombasa Port without the laid out legal procedures," Cherargei said.
Pokot South MP David Pkosing said that they will collect signatures from Wednesday seeking to impeach Kuria if he doesn't change.
"He will be the first Cabinet Secretary to leave office. We will impeach him. We will collect signatures if he doesn't change," he said.
Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria had on Monday said a legal notice for the importation of Genetically Modified Maize by millers was due this week.
However, before the State would give legal authority for the importation of maize, the Ship docked at the Mombasa Port.
On Tuesday , it was announced that Kenya will receive several tonnes of maize, days after the government said it will open a window for duty-free GMO maize to enter the country.
The move will address the biting food crisis.
According to a statement from the Kenya Ports Authority released on Monday, 37 vessels are expected at the port of Mombasa.
Number four on the list, the Africa Merlin Ship, carrying bulk maize and empty bags is said to have arrived on Monday.
Immediately, opposition leaders attacked the government claiming that the move has exposed schemes to defraud Kenyans.
