The Jesuits Center for Theological Reflection (JCTR) has urged government to put in place measures to counter the looming food insecurity resulting from the current farming season.

JCTRR Director says the army worms which recently invaded fields in most parts of the country, will negatively affect the agricultural production for the 2012/2013 farming season.

Father Chiti says it is therefore important for government to adequately prepare for the anticipated food insecurity.

The Clergyman has also noted with sadness that the development will affect Zambia%u2019s efforts in alleviating poverty.

And Father Chiti has urged the government to approach the corruption crusade with urgency adding that the fight will be meaningless if public resources are not recovered.

He says Zambians expect convictions of those found wanting of corrupt practices and that public resources recovered should be channeled to other needy sectors.

Father Chiti was speaking in an interview with Qfm News.
