LOW harvests and high demand for food in southern Sudan has led to an increase in prices, a weekly survey has shown.

A kilogramme of rice costs sh1,600 from sh1,500, while maize flour goes for sh700 from sh650. Beans cost sh1,000 from sh850.

Robert Mugisa, a trader at Nakasero Market, said he has been receiving 10 bags of beans and maize weekly, but they have reduced.

He said the prices in Sudan are high.

“The rains spoilt the crops. Even the little harvests are taken to Juba and Yei,” Mugisa explained.
Mugisa added: “The situation may worsen as schools open for the first term in February.”

He said maize, beans and rice are exported most because when eaten, a person takes long to feel hungry.
