    Between February and March 2019, Food and Non-Alcoholic Drinks’ Index increased by 3.30 per cent. As indicated in Table 3, this increase was mainly due to the prevailing drought conditions causing the costs of some foodstuffs to be higher than in February 2019. However, prices of some food items were lower in March 2019 compared to March 2018. For instance, maize grain recorded a drop of 33.81 per cent from KSh 62.78 per kilogram in March 2018 to KSh 41.56 in March 2019. Similarly, the prices of sifted maize flour, sugar and tomatoes were lower by 30.55, 10.57 and 10.80 per cent, respectively. The Housing, Water, Electricity, Gas and Other Fuels’ Index, decreased by 0.06 per cent in March compared to February 2019. This resulted from lower cost of electricity which outweighed increase in house rents and cooking fuels. The Transport Index increased by 0.42 per cent, mainly as a result of increases in pump prices of petrol and diesel.
