Admarc officials off to US to buy maize

Three senior officials of State produce trader Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation (Admarc) , including their biard chairman James Masumbu are in the United States  to buy maize, Nyasa Times understands.

Masumbu: Reportedly leading Admarc team

The trip comes at a time when two tax payers funded inquiries and the graft busting body, the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) are investigating suspicious dealings in the procurement of maize which led to suspensions of Admarx CEO Foster Mulumbe.

Nyasa Times sources said others on the trip include Admarc deputy CEO Margaret Mauwa and director of Finance Henry Kanjewe.

The trip has shocked some section of Malawians, including the civil society who are describing it  as money and time wasting.

The three Admarc officials have gone to buy the maize when both Admarc and National Reserve Agency have  repotedly enough maize.

It is not known when the three would return to Malawi.

Late President Bingu dealt with hunger in 2008 -2009. Why can’t this government use those strategies he used to do away with hunger?

So it is cheaper to buy maize than to grow when we can also increase our taxes through employment at the same time reducing unemployment. Don’t we have land and ready waters to grow in 3 months and harvest several times in a 12 month period? The lake has water from Karonga to Mangochi as well as furrow land along the waters. I see.

May be my school is too little to realize the whole issue.


I thought they say we have enough maize


This is nonsense mesa amati chimanga nchambiri?
