President Lungu’s PF Government Commended for its continued subsidizing of the Agriculture Sector

Share

CHIEF Mumena has commended President Edgar Lungu’s PF government for its continued subsidizing of the agriculture sector under the Farmer Input Support Programme (FISP).

He said as a result of FISP, poverty has reduced at household levels as the majority of the citizens were food secure.

The traditional leader was speaking at his palace when Nyimba Investments Head-Sales and Marketing Manager Willings Mulendema paid a courtesy call on him.

Chief Mumena said he was happy that Nyimba has been an active player in the agriculture sector by continuously supplying inputs on time as was witnessed during the 2019/20 farming season.

“I commend the government and partners under FISP. Let’s look at FISP as a survival kit, a game-changer, a strategy for making households achieve food security,” he said.

He said he was impressed to note that Nyimba has already started procuring inputs for the 202/21 farming season. He said the timely delivery of inputs has contributed to the entire North-Western province recording a bumper harvest.

Chief Mumena said Nyimba should continue supplementing the government’s efforts by ensuring that it supplies early.
And Nyimba Head-Sales and Marketing Manager Willings Mulendema said the company would always strive at delivering inputs early. With regards to the 2020/21 farming season,
Nyimba has so far procured over 50,000 metric tonnes. He said Nyimba would start distributing to all the provinces where the company has been engaged by this month end.

He said by June, Nyimba would have completed delivering for the entire nation so as to allow an opportunity to farmers that might be engaged in political activities.

  2. You are welcome sir. The government takes agriculture seriously. We will do whatever it takes to support you. Chamana.

    As for angry tarinyo above, do you ever read back your comments and think how pathetic and predictable you always sound on posts that favour pf government? Your tonga blood doesn’t let you comment that way on any upnd post. You are not f00ling anyone but yourself. The zambian people have decided that they will never vote in tribalists like you. Live with it or go hung yourself.

  3. The most classic adage regarding trolling is, “Don’t feed the trolls.” Trolls seek out emotional responses and find provocation amusing, so replying to them or attempting to debate them will only make them troll more. By ignoring a troll completely, they will likely become frustrated and go somewhere else on the internet.

    You should try your best not to take anything trolls say seriously. No matter how poorly they behave, remember these people spend countless unproductive hours trying to make people mad. They’re not worth your time of day.

  6. POPULIST DECISIONS OF THE PF GOVERNMENT SPECIFICALLY THAT OF LATE MICHAEL SATA HAVE PUT THE COUNTRY IN A TRICK SITUATION
    Am a Civil Servant in my Late thirties and I have Lived to see it all, From KK’s Government to the current one. By the way, before I even go into detail, the writer of this article is an Accountant by profession, ACCA by qualification.
    My fellow country men and women demand a lot from the Ruling Government and the Majority of them do not even understand where the government will get the resources to provide the much needed services for the country. Much of it is due to lack of information or because of the bad reading culture of my fellow citizens. Here is my take of what has gone wrong:
    CREATION OF DISTRICTS AND PROVINCES
    Our late president created too many…

  7. OF COURSE SUBSIDIES KILL AGRICULTURE BUT LET THEM CARRY ON DIGGING THEIR GRAVE DEEPER
    ISNT THIS WHAT WE WANT >> TO BURY PFF

  8. Yes, the majority of Zambians are food security of majority of Zambians is ensured because agriculture is growing!

  9. We have witnessed a bumper harvest this year due to the sufficient supply of fertilizers, pesticides, etc. on time by the government.

  10. President Lungu initiated clean drinking water project, upgraded roads, power sector, etc., and Zambia was already blessed with a favorable climate and land. All these factors helped the country’s agricultural sector to grow strong than ever!!!!

  11. Not only in Zambia, even Germany and other European countries are started stocking Zambian foods through the largest single agro investor in Zambia Amatheon Agro Company.

  12. Farmers across the country are also praising President Lungu, and we will witness the majority of farmers actively participating in the August elections and voting for Mr. Lungu as he deserves it.

  13. The only reason why all the government’s schemes are successful because there is zero corruption in the system plus it is public-oriented. That is why, the business, agriculture and other sector is growing rapidly.

  14. Indeed poverty is reducing in Zambia and within 2-3 years it would be completely vanished from the country, because of President Lungu’s economic recovery programme.

  15. YEHBO EVERY YOUTH TURNING TO FARMING IF I DIDNT HAVE A JOB ID BE FIRST IN THE QUEUE TO GET THE BUCKS
    WHICH WUD KEEP BE HAPPY WITH MY CUP OF ??
