  1. Bear them in mind as you go for round 2 portion of dinner. One of the long standing failures of the world is failing to find a way to achieve this across the planet.

  2. How then do you reconcile giving fuel to Malawi and maize to Zimbabwe, when the majority of Zambian can hardly afford a meal a day? A cheap pot shot from a Minister who is oblivious to what his boss is doing, its irresponsible to make such populist statements that are empty at best. What an inept lot who think they can hoodwink the populace at every turn! The day of reckoning is sure nigh.
