Residents of Ndenderu were left scrambling for maize after a lorry which was ferrying the cereal was involved in an accident.

In a video posted online, people can be seen sweeping the ground to collect maize that had fallen on the ground.

Reports indicated that the truck's brakes failed, causing the accident which left the valuable commodity scattered all over the road.

Ndenderu residents came out with buckets and shopping bags to collect the grain after the Monday morning accident.

Meanwhile, maize in Kenya has been put on the spot after Kebs suspended the licences of five maize millers over the sale of substandard flour.

Kebs released a statement saying it had banned Dola, Kifaru, Starehe, Jembe and 210 maize flour brands as they “do not meet the requirements of Kenyan market standards.”
