For several years around the Lake Victoria shores, Millet has proven to be the most nutritious cereal for most of the families living here. Mr. Jackton Okoth, tell a short story of the crop (Bel) he has known since he was a young boy.
Millet is used in many homes with children taking it as a formula drink whenever they need to drink as those who take tea or Coffee. Of late, the name is changing from the usual name Nyuka to Uji a thin gruel used as breakfast, porridge in Kiswahili a language that is widely spoken by the youths.
old people still admire porridge, Nyuka Bel. In Rusinga Island, millet is used in porridge, or is fermented every evening to be prepared in the morning when people are going out for morning chores. In very few cases, some use it into a beverage like Busaa, a local brew that old men and women used to take after a serious days work. In addition, in Rusinga, it is used to make bread for lunch or dinner, as baby food, and as
uji, for most of the familys drinks.
