CONSUMER EXPLOITATION

I think Kenyans are the most exploited lot of consumers in the whole world. I'll give just one example of this; it happened a few years ago and nobody raised a hand or a voice. It galls me so.

For a long time, BREAD in Kenya was 500g, one day the bakers cartel decieded that bread was too heavy and too cheap. So, they not only increased the price by 50% but reduced the weight to 400g. The incresing price of wheat flour did not warrant such.

P S:I guess its my strong attachment to bread in high school that makes me soo mad.
