Millet flour prices have dropped to Rwf1,200 from Rwf1,500 per kilogramme in Kimironko and other major markets across the city.

Monica Uwizera, a vendor in Kimironko Market, attributed the decrease to over supply of millet on the market.

“Millet supply is always high during this period, forcing prices of millet and its products to drop,” she explained.

A kilogramme of bananas was at Rwf180 in Gikondo Market, that of rice from Tanzania at Rwf1,000, while Pakistani rice cost Rwf750. A kilogramme of Irish potatoes was at Rwf230 in Nyabugogo Market.
