    Maize prices were slightly higher; nevertheless levels remained steady during most of 2011. The overall food security situation remains stable; however the peak of the lean season in January/February together with the high prices, constrained food access for the low income households. Food security conditions are likely to worsen by the late onset of erratic rains in December affecting the agricultural campaign particularly in some northeastern and southern areas. The Government continues the targeted distribution of input packages to expand households' production together with food distributions in some districts.

    Price of maize remained steady in the capital, but slightly higher than last year. Food security remains generally stable, but localised production declines could affect areas in the south that experienced a dry-spell in early 2011. Despite stable supply to markets thanks to increased maize production, poorer people in southern districts face access difficulties. The Government supported an estimated 1.5 million households with input subsidies for the 2010/11 season, but consumers are af fected by re-imposition of import duties.
