Kenya: Miraa Traders Blame the Govt Over Ban

Miraa traders have accused the government of laxity that has led to the ban of exportation of Miraa to Netherlands. Spokesman Kimathi Munjuri says they had been urging the government to intervene since the ban threats began last year. They say they are now stuck with tonnes of Miraa without a market and are making losses.
