Army Commander Lieutenant General William Sikazwe says smuggling of maize and mealie meal should be aggressively addressed in order to ensure food security in the country.

General Sikazwe says neighboring countries can be allowed to buy from Zambia but only through proper channels so that Zambians are NOT disadvantaged.

The Commander was speaking in Chipata today when he paid a courtesy call on the Provincial Administration where he was met by Assistant Secretary Royd Tembo.

    • Sorry brother, you got 1 thing very wrong. It was during mcs time the dollar shifted from K5,000 to K14,000. Than dropped back to K12,000. After elections it further dropped to 10 when felix mutati was finance minister and that dinasoure chikwanda dropped. Than when maggy came in, it went to 12. And now it’s at 15.5. This is a pf problem and the rot started with mcs when he appointed chikwanda at finance. Also most of the eurobond was signed during mcs – chikwandas time.

  2. This smuggling is a P.F operation, done by P.F ministers, officials, & wouldn’t even be surprised the Mukula Plot 1 thieving Daughter having her fingers in this maize and mealie meal scam.
    THIS IS WHAT ZAMBIANS VOTED FOR, SO ENJOY, WHILST YOU DANCE TO THAT DUNUNA REVERSE SONG!

  3. After the Mukula exposé the PF guys are falling over each other to detract us from the real story. Mealie meal smuggling is neither new nor novel. It is normally done by those with the power and the cash to pay their way across the borders – just like the Mukula syndicate; who doesn’t know that? Just sort out the Mukula nonsense and bring back the illicit cash to the country. Awe mwe!
