DEMOCRATIC Republic  of Congo ( DRC )’s K atanga Province governor Celestin Kapopo has appealed to the Zambian government to allow Congolese to buy mealie meal to promote trade between the two countries.
Currently, Congolese traders are not allowed to buy mealie meal from Zambia but allowing traders to use the right channels when trading in mealie meal will foster trade relations. The country is facing agricultural  production challenges as people have abandoned farming and ventured in small-scale mining.
