This chapter explores the politics of provisions in Kenya, tying the legitimising ideas of the moral economy into the opportunities offered by political dynamics and networks of solidarity and reciprocity. Between the end of December 2007 and mid-February 2008, unprecedented post-election violence in Kenya caused mass displacement from central maize-producing areas and substantial losses in food production. The maize-surplus areas of the Rift Valley and Western Kenya happen to be vote-rich areas, so that any suggestion of radical reform of the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) raises political temperatures. The court process in Kenya has historically been used as a site for public protest, and Consumers' Federation of Kenya (COFEK) wanted the court to issue a declaration to the effect that the government agencies' failure to stabilise and bring down fuel prices had the effect of raising the cost of food, thereby breaching Article 43 of the constitution.
