Opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema has charged that the country should forget about recording a bumper harvest under the Patriotic Front government.
Mr. Hichilema says the late delivery of farming input coupled with the effects of the army worms will contribute to a poor harvest this year.
Speaking to QFM news, Mr. Hichilema says unless the PF government changes its agricultural policy, the country will never record bumper harvests as was the case in the previous regime.
He says it is time President Michael Sata started acting on all the promises made during the campaigns stating that time is already running out and that citizens cannot wait any more.
Mr. Hichilema says it is very unfortunate that the PF government is proving to the people of Zambia in a very wrong way of running away from its responsibilities.
