Below is a full statement from the group.
We the PF Group calling ourselves PF Generals wish to urge the opposition to stop alarming the nation on matters of food security to avoid panic buying.
The PF Generals have carried out independent investigations which have revealed that Zambia has enough food in stock.
We would like to thank and commend His Excellency The President of The Republic of Zambia Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu for the resolute efforts towards the development of the Agriculture sector.
The Minister of Agriculture Hon Given Lubinda, The Food Reserve Agency, Millers Association of Zambia and the Zambia National Farmers Union have all indicated that the country has enough cereals and mealie meal.
The challenge of mealie meal has widely been attributed to careless talk by some opposition leaders who predicted a food shortage.
To such leaders we urge them to remain sober because they are causing misery among innocent Zambians.
The PF Generals also urge Zambians to look out for people smuggling the essential commodity and immediately report such to relevant authorities.
