On agriculture, Mr. Ruto said the ministry of agriculture had been issued with adequate funds to purchase fertilizer stocks that will last to the next planting season so that farmers can access the product easily.

"We have already provided funds to the Ministry of Agriculture to purchase enough fertilizer. We want fertilizer to be in the stores from January to January so that farming is not unnecessarily delayed" he said.

At the same time, the Deputy President who was accompanied by several MPS asked women and youth to take advantage of the recently launched Uwezo Fund and engage in business.

He said Sh20million had been earmarked for every constituency for such loans.
