Today the 1st Jan 2018 I visited the estate minimart to buy ugali flour. I luckily found the 2-kg subsidised unga going for 90bob, but on reaching the counter the cashier insisted I pay 120bob. When I insisted it should be kes 90 he took the flour and put it aside and shouted "next!".
I gave in and paid since the stew in the house was already done and my options were limited, but then he didn't even generate a receipt for me and wasn't bothered. Anyway, it a trader is benefiting from a govt subsidy the he shouldn't overprice because the govt already spent money on the product in advance so basically he's benefiting twice at our expense the tax payers.
