Farmers urged not to squander money on beer and women

Rural News Farmers urged not to squander money on beer and women

File: Peasant farmers selling their part of their maize harvest

KAZUNGULA District Commissioner, Albert Chifita has appealed to farmers who recently got paid by Food Reserve Agency (FRA) for the crop purchasing exercise to re-invest their money in agriculture rather than squander it on beer and women.

Mr.Chifita who thanked the farmers in the area for contributing 4500 bags of maize towards food security said the Government spent about K24bn on crop purchasing exercise in the district.

And Mr.Chifita said that Government has been allocating fertilizer to farmers for the 2010/2011 farming season.

He said farmers should not panic as Government has enough fertilizer in store for all of them to benefit.

Mr.Chifita said some farmers are fond of spending their money on illicit alcohol and other money wasting activities.

He advised them to use their money to buy farm equipments such as tractors and irrigators if they are to succeed in their farming
career.

Mr.Chifita further assured farmers that Government is committed to empower people in rural areas through farming.

Meanwhile Mr.Chifita who addressed a gathering at Syakalima Basic School in Kazungula’s Musokotwane area advised parents to avoid
engaging their children in early marriages.

The District Commissioner said parents should look at educating their children rather than engage them in marriage.

  1. After a hard work of tilling the land,one has to relax on a mosi or local brew while whistling at some beautiful Zambian girl, and debating on the party to vote for.That is life.What else can they do? save to buy a car in future?not in their plans.

  2. Im back on the block. Mr DC does it mean farming is a preserve for men. Their are so many women who do a lot of farming like one Edith Nawakwi.your advice is the women farmers shouldnt spend money on marios like hambulo run away husband of nawakwi

  3. these women need some money as well, how will the women have money if the men are not spending on them? I call it a COMMUNITY SERVICE on the part of men, you know, distributing their wealth to the less fortunate in society.

  4. Mr DC, how dare you tell me not to spend my women on women. I’ve just bought a larger farm after getting paid and have employed 8 women on the farm and to start the new farming season we had a party with supply of Mosi and Castle. Now you’re telling me not to spend money on women and beer, spend a little and live a lot. Just make sure that the farming inputs are sufficient for my needs.

  5. Every one who works hard to earn money has surely a plan for the money. These Farmers have been working and earning money for a long time. The so called DC should shut up and let people use their money the way they see it fit. He should not portray the Farmers as if they are not responsible. Never talk about my hard-earn money!!!!!!!

  6. It is their money and they should spend it in whatever manner they see fit, after all they are adults. Hope they dont forget their other responsibilities such as school fees and uniforms.

  7. how dare you tell people how to spend their earnings. Are you their parents? Trying to be a parent of parents? Awe mwana, let the guys enjoy their money on beers and spend it on vaginaz!

  8. Good advice especially for Tonga farmers who drink a whole bottle of undiluted orange sunquick, which they know as “fanta mukando”!

  9. #7 WANSENKESHA, WANISEKESA MWANDI………I THINK I GOT A BETA IDEA, LET THEM GO KU SADAUNI AND ENJOY THE CASH

  10. #8, i wish you could come visit my home. When i tell my family about the undiluted-juice antiques of some of the Tongas my family thinks i am deliberatley making fun of the Tongas lol

  11. To be honest, I hate politicians. Suddenly chifita has to tell people how to spend their money.I think there more important things you should do for the people that they are lacking rather than be “Mr I know better” who knows better than the farmers to suggest that the farmers’ knowledge has to be replced by his. Farmers dont suffer because they drink beer.they have more serious problems.when did FRA get there maize and whendid they get paid.How were they meeting their family needs during the time they were waiting to paidby FRA. In the waiting period they accumulated debts which they have to pay back to now,

  14. My fellower blogs lets just assume that he had nothing special to tell the farmers… He treat them as kids. At this time marketing season is over, these farmers now about to start another farming season, why this hyena coming late to pay farmers instead of paying them June – Sept. (Immediately after harvesting the crops)

    # 8 Sichaba Saruna >> You are off the mark. I am a Tonga man, Those farmers in Kazungula are not all Tongas… some of them are white farmers who crossed from Zimbabwe. Don’t promote tribalism on this rotten politician… Too late to buy farm products… during rain season, he should have gone there selling fertilizer .. not talking rubbish against the people who feed him.

  15. Ala ba Chifita imilandile ububi.Yes the farmers need some relaxation after some hard work and that includes a ka beer and kanamusana.Ati insansa niwemwine, lekeni abaneni baleyololako.

  16. #1 you are a big fool no wonder your family is full of failure despite your achievements.The DC is very wise and practical Zambians celebrate too early even when they know that their little money will ultimately finish and when they start to suffer they blame government.We should start thinking about the future women and beer have brought misery to most Zambian families in form HIV ,job losses,marriage break downs school dropouts and the like .I salute you Mr Kifita you are indeed a wise man.

  17. Mr Chifita you were a bootlicker of Chinese at mulungushi at the expense of ordnally zambians who worked less. Today after losing the solwezi constituency, you get a job of RB bootlic, you give advice to the farmers who tear the land with hoes. The farmers were supposed to receive the money long bfore now. Now you av given them too much job to dater looking for inputs when it is too late plus you mock them that they to use
    money wisely. Ulabeja

  18. #18. dont be so cheap. does reading a speach make someone wise? wisdom is expressed in someone’s actions and of course using ‘own’ wise words. Every 1 knows that wasting hard earned money on beer and prostitution (not on women) isn’t gud. I find it hard to see see wisdom in this ordinary poorly constructed mechanical peace of writing. Are you his thug/cadre?

  19. government was only getting 2.6 per cent in revenue from the exports of copper that stood at US$2.9 billion despite the huge boom in metal prices.

    Watunuka Watunuka .. where is zed heading pumping billions abroad to enrich foreigners while citizens are peanut paid .. vote for KK in 2011 zambia will be rich again like in the 1960-70S
