Mpika district runs out of mealie meal

Mpika Member Of Parliament Robert Kapyanga has disclosed that the district has run out of mealie meal owing to the shortage of maize.

Mr Kapaynga tells Phoenix News that milling company outlets, shops and the Zambia national service milling are all short of mealie meal, a situation that has caused panic among residents.

He is saddened that the shortage of mealie meal has happened months after the government commissioned the ZNS milling plant which is currently unable to produce the commodity citing lack of maize supply.

The lawmaker has appealed to the government to supply food reserve maize to the Zambia National Service in Mpika so that operations continue before the effects of the disruption gets out of hand.
