When will Government start issuing Chamba Licenses so that Malawian’s may open new export crops to the $352 Billion Dollar Chamba market to Canada, USA and certain European countries where Chamba is legal and shop in shops.
Malawi is loosing out on an Export Crop that Nigeria, Rwanda has endorsed to support their citizens.
