Shortage of mealie meal in Chipata has ended.

Supply of mealie meal in Chipata has improved ending the serious shortage that hit the district last week.
A check by Breeze News in some shops, found enough stocks of mealie meal with a 25 kilogramme bag of breakfast selling at 95 Kwacha.
A 10 kilogramme bag of the same product is being sold at 45 Kwacha.
However, the shortage of Zambia’s staple food has not completely ended as some supermarkets have not yet stocked the product.
Those spoken to indicated that they had already made their orders and were now waiting for suppliers to deliver the mealie meal.
Last week, Eastern Province Permanent Secretary, Chanda Kasolo revealed that a task force set up to investigate smuggling of mealie meal to neighbouring countries had started taking pictures of those buying mealie meal in bulk.
Mr. Kasolo warned that the task force, which includes officers from security agencies, will not hesitate to arrest those involved in the illegal trade.
