UPND President Hakainde Hichilema writes below…
With these economic problems and escalating mealie meal prices, we are calling on Mr. Edgar Lungu and his PF regime to hold a serious consultative meeting with the agriculture community, millers, agro-dealers, and grain traders.
We are available to provide them with technical assistance on how best citizens can continue to afford a bag of mealie meal without crippling production.
This should be an urgent meeting that should be called even before end of next week so as to address key issues in food security ahead of the next farming season.
Food insecurity in the country has the potential to destabilise national security, hence the need to pay attention to such domestic issues than globetrotting in expensive luxury jets.
May God bless our country.
