This follows reports by a named private media organisation that Mbala Secondary School has no mealie meal to feed pupils.
Mbala District Commissioner, Kedrick Sikombe, has revealed that contrary to the reports, the school has enough food to cater for this term and first two weeks of next term.
The visibly annoyed Sikombe said this after inspecting the store room at the learning institution today.
He has alleged that the named reporter was hired to tarnish the image of the institution and has since called on him to retract the story.
Mr.Sikombe, who described the move as cheap and mere politicking, has since warned private media organisation to be professional in their reporting.
And Mbala Head Teacher, Harry Silungwe, said the school is saddened by the alarming reports which have since caused panic among parents with pupils at the learning institution.
Mr Silungwe appealed to politicians not to use pupils in schools to gain political mileage.
The Head teachers said the school has over 250 x 25kg bags of breakfast mealie meal to last for this term and first two weeks of second term.
And School Boarding Prefect, Mercy Maipambe, said the feeding programme at the school is normal as they are able to feed three times a day.
She has since called on parents with pupils at the school not to panic but ignore the false media report.
A check by a ZANIS news crew in Mbala district this morning at Cereal Milling Company found huge stocks of mealie meal.
On Thursday this week a private TV station run a story on their main news alleging that Mbala Secondary School has run out of mealie meal.
