Allow farmers to export maize

Dear editor,
AS A concerned resident of Mkushi currently in Ndola for studies, I would like to say that (subsistence) farmers should be allowed to sell their farm produce such as maize during this year’s marketing season to neighbouring countries as some may wish.
This is because Government, through the Food Reserve Agency, delays to pay farmers, hence those with capacity should be at liberty to sell their produce.
This will allow them to buy farming inputs on time, unlike restricting them yet they are not paid on time.
