Chairperson for the women caucus in parliament Jessie Kabwila said this on the sidelines of a meeting between members of the caucus and officials from the ministry of agriculture.

Kabwila said government need to put in place measures to make sure that women, children and the elderly so that they are hardly hit by the hunger.
