FOODSTUFF supplies have been disrupted due to heavy rains that have made roads to rural areas impassable, a weekly survey has revealed.

Traders said commodity prices remained stable but said distribution would be affected if the rains continue.

“Roads have become slippery. We expected more beans and maize but we are getting little supplies,” Julius Kasangaki, a trader at Nakasero Market, said.

“Prices are still stable, but we are not sure what will happen the next day because if the situation continues, we might have shortages and a price increment,” Kasangaki said.

Paul Muyigi of St. Balikuddembe Market said the rains would contribute to more food production that will lead to price reduction.

A kilogramme of maize and millet flour remained at sh900 and sh1,500 respectively.

Cassava flour was sold at sh600 from sh400 a kilogramme while beans and rice remained at sh1,000 and sh1,500 respectively. A kilogramme of beans was sold at sh1,300.
