Farmers from Yala and it`s surrounding in Gem Sub county have decried over the constant frustrations in getting fertilizers at the NCPD offices branch in Yala.
The farmers have raised concerns over claims of discrimination by the officials when they go to buy the subsidized government fertilizers.
Led by Yala county Assembly MCA Joseph Kowuor,the farmers complained that the officials are giving priority to farmers from the neighboring regions instead of the locals in the sub county.
