In solidarity with Kenya and her quest for food security and improved farmer livelihoods, there was a a concurrent march on the same day, same time in Uganda’s capital Kampala.
Through the street march, RePlanet Africa reiterated their commitment and support for the Kenyan government’s move to lift the 10-year ban on the importation, sale, and consumption of GMOs, saying it is one of the ways to avert the endemic food crisis and guarantee that every Kenyan has access to safe and nutritious food.
