Government has warned that it will discipline people who are not following guidelines in the distribution of inputs under the Farmer Input Support Programme in Chipata district.

Government has warned people who are responsible for the distribution of inputs under FISP, the Farmer Input Support Programme in Chipata district that they risk losing their jobs if they do not follow guidelines.
Chipata district Commissioner, Kalunga Zulu, says that the distribution of inputs under FISP should be done in a transparent manner.
He said that this is the only way small scale farmers will fully benefit from the program.
Mr. Kalunga says that those who want to be selling fertilizer, should be ordering from the producers and not selling fertilizer meant for farmers.
He pointed out that people who are not following guidelines in the distribution of the farming inputs are tarnishing the name of government.
Mr. Kalunga said that government will therefore, not hesitate to punish those who will be found wanting.
Meanwhile, Casual workers who abandoned their work last week at Yakub Daya storage sheds for non-payment of salaries will be paid this week.
The situation which disturbed the distribution of inputs as casual workers complained of not getting their salaries for three months, is now under control as NCZ, the Nitrogen Chemicals of Zambia is expected to release an undisclosed amount of money owed to casual workers in Chipata on Monday.
