Serious hunger has hit Chibande ward of Chief Mwanya’s area in Lundazi district, forcing people to be surviving on wild fruits.
Chibande Ward councillor, Jumbe Sakala told Breeze News that most people in the area are cooking unripe Mangoes as their everyday meal.
Mr. Sakala says this is because most fields were washed away in the rainy season when Lukuzye River was flooded since the area in a valley.
Mr. Sakala has appealed to government to provide relief food to the area as soon as possible, before roads become impassable in the rainy season.
Mr. Sakala says he is ready to work and develop the area through CDF, Constituency Development Fund and partner with the private sector.
