Former Senator Millicent Omanga now claims that prices of essential commodities have started coming down thanks to the concerted efforts of President William Ruto.
The ex-lawmaker says that the Kenya Kwanza government has all hands on deck and has been burning the midnight oil to ensure that the cost of living is lowered.
"Seen prices of essential commodities are coming down. I told you that before long you'll start seeing good things coming your way. The government of President William Ruto is burning the midnight oil to ensure the burden on Kenyans is lifted surreptitiously," Omanga stated.

Omanga's claim comes amidst hue and cry from Kenyans over the high cost of living. Fuel and maize flour are among the notable commodities whose prices have skyrocketed sparking an outcry among Kenyans.
Since his ascendancy to power, President William Ruto has umpteenth times assured Kenyans that his government will enact viable measures that will see the lowering of prices of Unga and other essential commodities.
Ruto: Give me 1 year to reduce Unga prices
President William Ruto on Tuesday, October 25 said the country needs at least one year to stabilize the cost of living.
Speaking during a groundbreaking of 4054 affordable housing units in Kibera, Ruto said the production sector in the country had been neglected for four years and it will take him up to one year to remedy the situation.
"I told you we must reduce the cost of living and Unga and that journey of doing it has started. I have already reduced the cost of fertilizer.
"We have given our farmers 1.5 million bags of fertilizers and we are planning to give them another six million to increase the production of food.
"This will make the cost of unga come down. Those who increased the cost of unga to Ksh230 did it in four years, but just give me one year to rectify it," he told Kibera residents.
