Prices of tubers soar, customers complain

The prices of root tubers top the food inflation charts for the third week in April, with Cassava seeing the biggest margins of increase.

Farmers have blamed this on current weather conditions and the time of the year. According to them, tubers are usually out of season at this time of the year, leading to relative scarcity on the market hence the escalation in prices.
