Kabompo residents have appealed to government to offload large quantities of subsidized maize from the Food Reserve Agency (FRA) in the district.

The residents want FRA to offload the maize so that they could from the market and mill it themselves because of the high increase in the price of both maize and mealie meal.

Those talked to at the markets appealed to government to offload large quantities of FRA maize on the market for the general public to buy during the rainy season when the district faces hunger due to food shortages.

The survey also revealed that roller meal has run out in all retail shops in the district while a 25 kilo gram bag of breakfast meal is selling at K 75,000.00

  1. Why sell all the maize? Subsistence Farmers should learn to leave some bags of maize for their consumption.
