  1. Please do not only tell the people but also provide the funds to make this diversification bearable. People do not like change if they see no incentive!!

    • People should not be told by Lusaka to produce more food, but rather our structure of government could have allowed this in the first place. Since we are so heavely centralized it has killed all the initiative in the provinces and people have to wait for the minister to tell them what to do. Suppose the minister forgets to go to Mwansabobwe since he or she can not be everywhere, those people starves, thats the implication.

  2. Ahhh, household level? yes garden not a farm. Promote them to have farms and provide inputs and training for sure. Don’t you want these people to grow intellectually? It seems government just wants to help these people stay just the way they are. Anyway…
