  1. effiency ka? Before 2019/2020 harvest!! How I wish every was an election year. Zambia would have changed for sure. All the best NCZ. Hope you will get paid.

  2. NCZ – 10,000 tons: what percentage of this is national demand? An order of 10,000 tons is nothing – it should be nothing to talk about by NCZ. How much is the rest of the contract that the government has given the other suppliers?

  3. The UNIP government under leadership of KK had reasoned establishment of Nitrogen Chemicals of Zambia (NCZ) with a vision. All was lost when UNIP got booted out of government! 10,000 tons is peanuts for only about 50,000 small scale farmers yet FISP targets much more!
