ZAMBIA’S BROKEN ECONOMY REASON FOR K160 MAIZE PRICE – MWEETWA.

UPND Spokesperson Cornelius Mweetwa says the K160 maize purchasing price announced by the Food Reserve Agency is a transitory price.

Mr. Mweetwa says the party is aware about the concerns and dissatisfaction that Zambians are raising concerning the marginal increase in the maize purchasing price from K150 to K160.

Speaking at a media briefing this morning, Mr. Mweetwa said the government is determined to ensure that farmers are offered better prices in the coming agriculture marketing season.

He said the failure by FRA to offer farmers a better price is due to the country’s huge debt.

  1. Yes true very fair price. Also raising the price of maize will push up the price of mealie meal and the very people making noise and using this as a campaign gimmick will be shouting the loudest on mealie meal price.
