Kenya to overturn GMO ban

The Kenyan government will lift the ban on the sale of food containing genetically modified organisms in the next two months, newspaper the Nation reports. It cites Deputy President William Ruto. "Various government Ministries, departments and agencies concerned with biotechnology have already consulted and agreed on the necessary regulations and safety measures to be adhered to so that we can maximise on agricultural production, improve health services, conserve the environment and basically improve the living standards of our people," he reportedly said. Kenya banned the sale of food containing GMOs, and the import of GM crops in late 2012.  The ban reportedly undermined Kenya’s legal and regulatory system for agricultural biotechnology.
