The main cause of food insecurity in Africa is the inability to of citizens to gain access to food due to poverty. Many factors have contributed to this problem which leads to an increase in the prevalence of food insecurity (Mwaniki, 2015, p. 1).

It was so hard for the rural communities because besides the crops they kept for themselves the crops they sold weren’t surviving so besides losing food to eat the crops
