Netherlands backs the buy Zambia campaign


The Netherlands Development Organization (SNV) has backed the call made by President Edger Lungu to promote locally produced food by helping farmers to grow more bio micronutrients plants on a large scale.

SNV Project Agriculturist Waunyae Limweta says pronouncements to promote local foods has cheered the organization which has started providing skills to farmers in horticulture and further provide market linkages to sell their produce.

Mr.Limweta has further appealed to Zambians to trust and support the locally grown food so as to boost the horticultural business and increase the country’s supply of variety of vegetables.

Speaking at the same meeting, District Administrative Officer, Brenda Silwembe said government is happy to work with partners such as SNV which has taken a leading role in promoting the buy Zambia campaign.

Mrs. Silwembe expressed happiness that most vegetables farmers in Chinsali had sold their produce with reasonable prices thereby motivating others to venture into vegetable growing.


  1. No corruption, luckily the Dutch are not as f00lish as you and your tribal friends the upnd diasporans. Now simply fuk 0ff my friend

  2. No corruption, luckily the Dutch are not as f00lish as you and your tribal friends the upnd diasporans. Now simply *** my friend. You are a pain

  3. Very well my corrupt KZ, I am happy I got you under my skin. No I am not UPND and I am not a diasporan like you. I am not partisan at all, I just HATE totally CORRUPT thiefs like you and your PF criminal friends, and I can’t wait for August 13 and you will be in JAIL!

  4. Buy zambian campaign can only work if zambian products are cheaper than imported ones. Just now onions are at K250 per bag but when imports were allowed the same zambian produced onions were K70 per bag. Same with potatoes and even medicines.

  5. Yes and now there are no potatoes in any supermarket! Well done not so clever PF government! KZ, do something useful for a change, get me a 5kg bag of potatoes please, I want to eat fries tomorrow!

  6. Haha got under my skin? You are a lost f00l. How can a nobody like you affect me? Be brave and show yourself. I don’t hide myself like you cowards. In fact if you are in Zambia then let us meet. I want to see you say those same things you say here to my face if you are man enough. You know what will happen to you. So continue yapping here like a crazy dog
