Gary Nkombo
Mazabuka Central Member of Parliament Garry Nkombo has challenged Government to justify why Food Reserve Agency (FRA) will buy a 50kg bag of maize during this year’s marketing season at K60.

FRA recently announced that only 500,000 tonnes of maize and 2,100 tonnes of paddy rice and 20, 000 tonnes of Soya Beans will be bought at a total cost of over 900 million kwacha.

And the Mazabuka lawmaker has alleged that the Patriotic Front led Government is bent to destroy the agriculture sector in Zambia.

Nkombo said Government should have subsidized the nation at production level and not at consumption level.

“We challenge Government to justify why Food Reserve Agency (FRA) will buy a 50kg bag of maize during this year’s marketing season at K60” Nkombo said

  1. In Southern Province ( Mazabuka) I am buying the maize at K45 per 50kg bag. It is demand and supply driven price.
