GOVERNMENT has set up a committee to deal with the smuggling of mealie-meal into Malawi and Mozambique.

Eastern Permanent Secretary Chanda Kasolo said yesterday that the committee which was set up in consultation with provincial minister Malozo Sichone was monitoring super markets and other mealie-meal retail shops.

He said that Government was fully aware of the trend where mealie-meal is being exported to neighbouring countries in the region illegally.

Mr Kasolo observed that exporting mealie-meal was a new way smugglers were using to take Zambian maize out of the country.

He explained that following Government’s embargo on maize exportation, people have now turned to mealie meal.

Mr Kasolo has warned that anyone who would be found smuggling mealie-meal outside the country will be arrested.

Recently, people have been calling on government to put in place measures that would end smuggling of mealie-meal.

  1. There is no law to stop this bwana Kasolo. It is your visionless presido and his cabinet especially Lubinda who instructed FRA to sell our grain tp RSA, Congo and Malawi claiming in their dullness or deliberate way to steal that there was too much maize in store which must not be let to go to waste. When some wise people advised them not to sell they rebuked them and told them off. Vision-less leaders elc akangiwa, woooooh, woooh, wooh. ba Pf mwakangiwa.


  2. This PS is typical PF – Exporting of maize has long been legal – encouraged by the visionless one!!
    Pf don’t to tell the “Tail”(Tail is too kind – rather “AR..SE”) from the “head!”
