    • UPND MPs can supply Zambians with enough beef, if taxes were reduced.
      Nawakwi’s company of sausages is doing good too.

  1. Very good.

    Those South African are quick to ban Zambian products.

    Keep them out for as long as possible and give locals tax breaks to solidify

  2. How about Kariba/Siavonga border? It means people can pass freely. You need sniffer dogs to detect hidden meat and meat products.

    • Zambian borders are porous. Produce from SA can easily enter through LUANGWA DISTRICT BORDER, PETAUKE, CHADIZA, VUBWI etc.
