Small Scale Farmers Development Agency (SAFADA) executive director Boyd Moobwe says his organisation is disappointed with the alleged disappearance of K 34 million at Zambia National Farmers Union (ZNFU).
Mr Moobwe said the alleged plunder of such huge sums of money makes sad reading especially that it comes at a time when government has shown commitment to revamp the agriculture sector in Zambia.
In a press statement made available to ZANIS in Lusaka today, the SAFADA director said it is even more disturbing that the disappearance of funds has led donors to freeze financial support to ZNFU.
Mr Moobwe also said it is disappointing to note that money can go missing when other farmer based organisations are grappling with operational challenges due to poor funding and lack of donor support.
He said investigation wings should thoroughly probe the organisation and establish the truth at the ZNFU in order to recover the alleged stolen funds.
