Kigali milk consumers will keep digging dipper into their pockets to get the precious product. Speaking on a phone interview with Sabitti Kassiani, chairperson of Matimba Tworore Kijambere (MATW-CO) today said this has been resulted from the prolonged dry spell the country has been facing since the last four months.

Milk prices have climbed up again by between Frw 400 and Frw 550 due to low supplies from dairy farmers especially in the eastern Province, traders have said.

A half a litre packet of milk has been retailing at Frw 500 or Frw600 depending on the brand.

Although the prices has been shooting up daily, Kassiani expressed optimism saying that this is expected to go back to normal once the long rains season commences.

“Forces of demand are the key determinants of the price we hope that this will come back to normal once the rain commences,” he explained. “Once the cows have enough to consume things we be back to normal; it will just take three to four weeks after the rain has started.”
