PRESIDENT Lungu says he will follow up with the ministers of Agriculture and Finance to find out why some farmers have not yet been paid money for the maize they sold to the Food Reserve Agency (FRA).

The President says he had directed Minister of Agriculture Dora Siliya and her Finance counterpart, Felix Mutati, to put in place measures to ensure that farmers who sold maize to FRA are paid in readiness for this year’s farming season.
He said this on Thursday night on return from Congo-Brazzaville, where he had travelled for a Great Lakes Region summit.
