ECM not seeing govt commitment in hunger fight

6

The Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM) has expressed dissatisfaction with the way government is handling the food crisis facing the country saying it lacks commitment in addressing the issue.

Over 2.8 million people this year are at risk of facing hunger due to the floods which the country experienced earlier this year.

Saindi: Stresses need for ending hunger.

Secretary general for ECM Father Henry Saindi said so far government has not done anything concrete to address the food shortage Malawi has been experiencing every year.

“Government has not done anything to address the food shortage facing the country though they have put forward irrigation farming nothing tangible has been seen,” said Saindi.

He suggested that government should put good measures in irrigation farming and Malawi should emulate the good example of  Israel which  experiences low rainfall but relies on irrigation and its people do not face food shortages.

A few weeks ago President Peter Mutharika called on the donor Community to assist Malawi with 83.4 billion Kwacha to help over 2.8 million people who are expected to face hunger this year.
