Some unscrupulous people are dupping farmers in Lundazi district

Some unscrupulous people are collecting money from tobacco farmers in Chief Zumwanda’s area of Lundazi district under the promise that they give them inputs.
Eastern Fodya Association of Zambia EFAZ Chairperson, Franklyn Mwale disclosed this to Breeze News in Lundazi.
Mr. Mwale stated that the crooks are posing as officers from Tobacco Merchant Company of Zambia Limited, a Lusaka based firm.
He further revealed that when he made inquiries from the Tobacco Merchant Head Office in Lusaka, the owner denied having officers in Lundazi district.
Mr. Mwale however, stated that it is not clear whether the farmers will be given inputs.
He cautioned tobacco farmers to make inquiries with TBZ, the Tobacco Board of Zambia and EFAZ on which companies are coming in the province especially that major companies have pulled out.
Ten tobacco small scale farmers have already paid their membership.
