media release

issued: 3rd August, 2017

 

Following an outcry by farmers over the K60 Market Price for maize announced by the Food Reserve Agency (FRA), the Zambia National Farmers’ Union (ZNFU) has written a letter to the Agency requesting for a meeting, which letter was delivered on Tuesday morning of 1st August, 2017.

We are currently still waiting for a response from the FRA, to state exactly the date and time when they are willing to meet with us so that we sit and arrive at a consensus over the market pricing.

We, in the meantime, are requesting farmers to be patient as the Union tries to explore all possible channels as this matter is a serious one.

 

FOR ZAMBIA NATIONAL FARMERS’ UNION

 

Jervis Zimba

PRESIDENT
