In the United States only 0.15% are employed in agriculture and they are much more wealthier and food secure.This has moved from over 80% in 1700s.In Europe,before the industrial revolution there were people starving as the are people starving in northern Kenya today.Time to move away from agricultureI agree. However, we cannot overlook the fact that not every Kenyan can fit in the service or manufacturing sector. Moreover, we need to look at our comparative advantage and so far, we rank among the top in several agricultural products. Just imagine if we restructure our farming techniques especially for those rural farmers. They can produce export-standard products and get even the most illiterate out of poverty.
