There is enough maize stock in Lusaka to last up to the next farming season-Lusambo

Lusaka Province Minister, Bowman Lusambo has assured residents in Lusaka that there is enough maize stock to last up to the next farming season.

Mr Lusambo says residents should not panic over shortage of mealie mealie because all the millers under the tripartite Agreement have enough stock of maize.

He says Lusaka has enough mealie meal stocks and urged people in the province NOT to resort to panic buying.

Mr Lusambo said he visited all the millers under the tripartite agreement and found that they had enough stock of maize which they got from FRA.

The Minister was speaking in an interview with ZNBC News after touring millers who have been receiving maize stock from the Food Reserve Agency -FRA.

Mr Lusambo has since urged all District Commissioners to be on alert and ensure people are not exploited.

Meanwhile , Central Province Minister, Sydney Mushanga has maintained that the province has enough maize feed stocks to sustain the mealie meal demand at an affordable price.

Mr Mushanga said the recent purported shortage of mealie meal, the staple cereal, in the province was artificial caused by adversaries of government who would want to agitate people for regime change.

Speaking over the weekend in Kabwe, the minister said the central province administration has since put measures in place that will compel millers to ensure that the local demand is satisfied before supplying other regions.

He said security wings especially police officers have been put on high alert to make sure no maize or mealie meal leaves the borders of the province.

  3. This dimwit called Lusambo can’t keep his lane, in what capacity is he telling us? I thought Dora is a chief government propagandist to issue such statements.

  4. Then why arrest innocent youths. What lusambo says and does are contrary to each other I wonder if he smokes his chamba upside down.

  5. Lusambo misses his days as a call boy at kabwe’s brimas bus station when he also used to load luggage on those buses so he thought of reminiscing by lifting bags of fertilizer. Please let us help him to go back to what he misses by not bringing him back next year.

  6. This is now the sing-song for all PF govt. policy failures. That, all this is due to;

    “adversaries of government who would want to agitate people for regime change”.
