Be patient as we engage Lungu on his promise, ZNFU tells farmersBy Zondiwe Mbewe on 21 Sep 2017
ZNFU says farmers must be patient because the union will only engage President Edgar Lungu on his promise to relook the maize market price once he returns from the UN General Assembly.
Zambia National Farmers Union president Jervis Zimba told News Diggers! that the union had not yet met President Lungu to discuss the upward adjustment of the K60 per 50kg bag of maize.
“We are waiting for the President to come back and when he comes back, we will follow up the issue as the matter is now in his hands. Farmers need to be just a little patient and I trust farmers are always patient people,” said Zimba.
And asked whether State House had contacted FRA on President Lungu’s commitment, FRA public relations officer Daniel Msoka said he could only give an update by next week Tuesday.
On September 12, 2017, President Lungu assured the Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia that government will re-look the low market price of maize.
Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda said the President was committed to developing the agriculture sector and ensuring that challenges affecting farmers are addressed in order to empower them economically.Related Items
