Brace for Hunger, Urges PF Minister

maize-zambia-reportsThe PF government has finally admitted the mismanagement of the agriculture sector and are now bracing themselves for the looming hunger.

Northern Province minister Colonel Gerry Chanda has said government should stand ready to address the looming hunger situation in the country.

Colonel Chanda said the impending hunger is as a result of poor performance by institutions mandated to manage the agriculture sector.

After touring the province, he said government has not done well in promoting agriculture in the 2012/2013 agriculture season.

There are fears of hunger in the country this year after a poor approach to agriculture policies that included late delivery of farming inputs. Nsumbu in Kasama has already started recording serious food shortages while the price of mealie meal is sky-rocketing.
