Saboti MP Caleb Amisi has asked Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen to show Kenyans his avocado plantation.
Speaking over the weekend, Amisi observed that Murkomen and those that have been championing for diversification should lead by example in avocado farming.
“If you are a leader then you must lead by example, don’t tell Kenyans to plant avocado and macadamia when you haven’t done so yourself,”said Amisi.
“You can’t tell Kenyans to plant avocados when you have never eaten one in your life,”he added.
The lawmaker said it was regrettable that a section of leaders are pushing farmers to abandon maize farming while the country’s staple food is ugali.
