Government will receive one million euros in grants from the Germany government to go towards the Agriculture Sector.

Germany Head of Development Cooperation John Gartzer made the announcement when he handed over a tractor to a small scale farmer in Mpongwe District on the Copperbelt.

He said the funds will be distributed through Adleasco, a Germany agriculture financing company aimed at empowering small scale farmers with agriculture equipment.

Gartzer said the initiative is aimed at promoting smart farming that is expected to improve productivity and food security in the country.

Meanwhile, Copperbelt Permanent Secretary Bright Nundwe said government has embarked on promoting smart agriculture.

He said the use of equipment in agriculture will enhance production among small holder farmers.

Meanwhile, Joyce Mwewa, the recipient of the tractor has thanked the Germany government for the support.

She said the tractor will help her produce more and contribute to the country’s food security.

    Well and good for farmer mechanization and empowerment. Chances of embezzling the funds by some dishonest Zambian government officials are minimal observing that…..”the funds will be distributed through Adleasco, a Germany agriculture financing company….” meaning checks and balances weighing more on the funders than the recipient partners. Likely that disbursements will be directly to the farmer and the Zambian government will get the report on the beneficiaries! For those who expected handling the actual funds, it will be like smelling the coffee aroma from a mug served to another person rather than the thirsty self!

    Comment:I urge all donors to emulate German by donating funds thru their own established channels!

    I wonder what people mean when they say PF don’t steal. If it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t see such a donation.

    This shows how much confidence the donor community have in the PF Government even when the opposition are working very hard to discredit it but it seems they have failed lamentably. The Corruption campaign by the opposition against the PF has also failed to stick.

    I do not like the language of donations, this tongue kills development why should you glad to receive! What you should know is that no one can give you anything for nothing.
    Africans must wake up and see where they are missing it. Just for how long have you been receiving, every year you receive but don’t mount to anything what a shame.
