More maize purchase problems for Food Reserve Agency

Challenges that FRA, the Food Reserve Agency is facing in buying maize from farmers in Chipata and Lundazi districts could worsen.

This is because private companies, millers and vendors, who are buying the produce at more than 100 Kwacha for a 50 kilogramme bag, are setting up more buying points in rural parts of the two districts.

Breeze FM Correspondent, Edward Mbulo has visited a number of chiefdoms in Chipata and Lundazi, where farmers have vowed not to sell their crop to FRA because of the low buying price.
