Maize is a much sought after commodity on the market

As hunger bites Malawi, maize is a much sought after commodity on the market

There are confusing statements being issued on the food status of the country.

Admarc Public Relations officer Agnes Ndovi also assured that no Malawian will starve as they are doing everything possible to make the staple food available to all.

“We appreciate that there are sometimes challenges in maize distribution,” said Ndozi.

She said the distribution process has gone well since January this year.

According to Ndovi, they have managed to distribute 50 bags of maize in Ndirande Township, 100 bags at Zingwangwa Township, and 75 bags of maize in Chilomoni Township.

She explained that Admarc has been sending maize to the townships every fortnight due to high demand.

At a time when there is maize scarcity and hunger across the country, Admarc officials are facing accusations of conniving with vendors who buy the maize for resell to desperate Malawians at exorbitant prices.

President Peter Mutharika issued a stern warning that his government was going to deal with vendors who were conniving with officials to “steal” the scarce commodity.

This Ndovi woman is completely useless and out of ideas. Where is the maize? She mentions Ndirande and Chilomoni, how about Mtakataka, Likoma Island, Chipoka, Thalire, Nsanje Lalanje. We need supply of maize to the extent that there are no long lines of people and no one faints or a child stampeded on.,

Are we serious? 50 bags for Ndirande, and 90 bags for Zingwangwa? Does it mean we are in the situation of hand to mouth. This can’t be, we are country. And what about rural areas?

This is mockery to Malawian Nation. How many families can feed on 50 bags? Maximum 50 families and then talk of Ndirande. How many famies? Let us be serious we are dealing with lives God given. Resign if you can not manage. Read Joseph story in the Bible and will appreciate distribution policy
