Zambia at the brink of food shortage due to PF’s mismanaged agriculture

Zambia is at the risk of facing a critical food shortage due to poor agriculture policies by PF government. Under this regime there has been late delivery of inputs, reduced Farmer Input Support Programme (FISP) packs, delayed payments of farmers for their produce and now the notorious e-voucher. In Mukonchi farming block in Kapiri Mposhi and other areas, this is the state of maize as taken from two different fields of small scale farmers due to this mismanagement, coupled with poor rainfall.
