Lungu empowers farmers

PRESIDENT Lungu has increased the maize floor price from K75 to K85 per 50kg bag.
Speaking when he paid a courtesy call on Senior Chief Shakumbila at the Chisalu palace yesterday, President Lungu said the Food Reserve Agency (FRA) will open this year’s crop marketing season in the first week of July.
“I have increased the maize floor price to K85 from K75 but if they will take it as politics, as campaign, we will campaign. Should I stop listening from people because it is a campaign period?
“If the opposition will be saying it is wrong timing, I can say there will be no better timing,” President Lungu said.
