Minister of Information Henry Mussa said this on Saturday (November 24 2018) during a  rally which he held in his Chiradzulu East Constituency at  Nankhundi Primary School ground in the area of Group Village headman Masanjala, T/A Kadewere in the district.

In his remarks, Mussa  said that government is aware that some districts in the country are facing a serious problem of food shortage since they failed harvest enough maize and other crops  which was a result of  inadequate rainfall and poor weather condition.

But Mussa assured Malawians that government is geared as it is doing everything possible to rescue them from the challenge.

He said currently government is planning  to reach out to all the affected people with a maize distribution programme as soon as possible  before the problem get out of hand and that no one will die because of hunger in the country.

“It is the wish and government’s duty to make sure that  every citizen is living a happy life  by having enough food in the house and in that way they can easily contribute in a number of developments taking place in their respective areas.

“ So, as I am talking now Admarc warehouse’s are filling up  with maize to distribute to all those that have been hit by hunger and we are targeting to over 3million people which is quite a lot in terms of money. I can’t give the exact figure of how much will set aside but we are challenging that the food distribution will reach each and every people affected by this problem,” said Mussa.

He further urged people in the district and whole Malawi to vote in their massive numbers for DPP in the pending 2019 tripartite elections in order  to continue with the ongoing developments programmes taking place in the country.

During the rally a total of six PP, UTM and UDF members were welcomed into DPP camp in the area after announcing their defection and interest to join the ruling party.

why malawi why? every year govt spend almost 30% of its total budget on fetelizer subsidy but after harvesting season govt again spending money to feed the same people. this means subsidy has felled and you’ve suspend it. find companies that can harvest and process cereals on large scale like [illovo], then use the money you spend on subsidy to subsidise the processed maize/flour. the whole cabinet and president cant even come up with such an idea. what kind of readers are we having.?

50 years of independence, 50 years of a university dedicated to agriculture, we are still farming with makasu, distributing maize every year because the crop has yet again failed. This is classic definition of ‘insanity’, doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result. What’s wrong with us
