Kenya National Federation of Agricultural producers today said the auctioning of NCPB property will cause food insecurity in the country.
Addressing journalists in Kitale yesterday, Trans Nzoia chairman William Kimosong asked government to stop the auction saying the move will paralyse farming.
"It is painful that the auctioning of NCPB assets is being done at this time when farmers are expecting more services from the firm as they undertake planting preparations" said Kimosong.
He said most of the properties owned by NCPD belong to farmers.
NCPB could be auctioned following a Sh.500 million debt dispute which arose after the NCPB contracted Erad supplies to supply 4000 metric tones of white maize in 2004.
