Malawi grain marketer Admarc has assured that the country has enough stocks of the staple food to reach the harvesting season.
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.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
