There's been a lot of talk in the news about the sharp rise in food prices which hit home last week when I went to buy my two fresh eggs for Sunday lunch. The woman at the stall right by my house from whom I buy produce all the time told me it was now 400 shillings instead of 300. I doubt that was because she suddenly thought she could ask me more. I asked if food prices were going up for her. She said, "All of them are going up." This could be bad.
