Government has apologised to Kasempa farmers for the late delivery of Urea Fertiliser in the 2016/2017 farming season.

Speaking in an interview with Kfm news, Kasempa District Commissioner (DC) Goodson Sansakuwa said Government is aware that fertilizer distribution in the district was delayed this year.

The DC said the delay was caused by the suppliers who could not deliver the input in time despite being paid on time by Government.

Mr. Sansakuwa, however, was pleased to say that about 90% of the farmers have received the input and only about six truck loads are remaining to complete the consignment.

The DC said he  does not anticipate a bumper harvest this year but assured the farmers that government will put its house in order to deliver the input early in the coming farming season.

  3. Another predicted failure by the Pathetic Failures thinking that by saying sorry everthing will be fine. In well managed countries, the Agric Minister would have resigned on moral grounds. But in Zambia, failure is a standard and there’re no consequences. Shame
