Newly elected Nkhanga ward councillor in Lundazi district Obote Banda has asked government to close Nkhanga FRA Food Reserve Agency satellite depot.
The civic leader has told Breeze News that government should consider closing the satellite depot for not buying any maize since the market opened in July.
Mr. Banda indicated that it was pointless to maintain workers at the satellite depot when there was nothing happening.
He alleged that the FRA would just accumulate bills for salaries and other costs for nothing.
And Lundazi District Agricultural Coordinator Philemon Lungu also acknowledged the need to close some depots in the district.
Mr. Lungu stated there was need to recommend for earlier closer of some depots which have failed to record any purchase.
