Drought has greatly affected the price of matooke in Uganda . this was a statement said by Mrs Aisha Nakalema, a matooke seller at Nakasero market in Kampala.

She says that ever since the festive season, the matooke have continued to go high, contrary to what was expected in Uganda.

Currently a bunch of bananas ranges between UGX 25,000 and UGX 30,000 in Nakasero market, an increase that has scared off the customers.

She adds that those who sell food have nothing to do but instead to reduce on the amount of Matooke that they give to their customers.
