Reduce Mealie Meal Prices Or Close Your Shops, Warns Mwakalombe


Copperbelt Minister Japhen Mwakalombe has threatened to close all mealie meal outlets that are selling the commodity at over K130. Mr. Mwakalombe, who was on a tour to sensitize marketers on COVID-19, opted to explain the challenges of mealie meal shortages and high prices. “I will move in to check what is happening. These milliers are given cheap maize by government, through FRA. So if I find anyone selling more than the K130 mark, I will close the shop,” Mr Mwakalombe told the marketeers at Chisokone market in Ndola.
