Malawi hunger: No maize in ADMARC depots

70

As 2.8 million people in Malawi are expected to be affected by hunger, government has reduced the supply of maize to Agriculture Development Corporation of Malawi (ADMARC) depots from 600 50Kg bags of maize to 100 bags.

No maize in ADMARC’s.

This is contrary to what Admarc spokesperson Agnes Ndovi said last month that the corporation had 55 metric tonnes of maize to feed Malawians.

“We have enough maize to feed Malawians of about 55 Metric tonnes and some maize had been sourced locally and some from neighbouring countries,” said Ndovi.

But according to ADMARC employees who asked for anonymity, they are now supplied with 100 50Kg bags of maize from 600 bags of maize.

They said government was rationalising the maize in order to maintain food availability in the country.

Some people are now resorting to buying maize from vendors who are selling the commodity at 9,000 Kwacha which is very high as compared to Admarc prices.

South African government has already made a budget of R2.2 billion rand to buy mainze from other countries to save lives of their citizens due to the drought that is brazing the country,why not malawi government?.Where is the emergency money that was been included in budget?.If the people dies of hunger this year,government must answer.

  9. Lekani waka tumakuponi twinu mwagawaniska tawanthu na tumakoponi twinu.Learn from His Ex.Ngwazi Kamuzu Banda if u want to kill hunger in Malawi if not do it as a tool for compagning but not to kill hunger.Malawians say NO to starter pack say YES to Kamuzu Banda principles abt agriculture to kill hunger.

  10. Pansika chimanga still available mwina ku Admarc ko but njala imavuta ngati pansika palibe ku Admarcnso kulibe. So dont panic sizinafike povutisitsa. Remember anthu ena ngakhale nthawi yokolora iwo amakhala alibe chifukwa salima

  11. Afta Kamuzu Banda, all succeeding govts have tried to cripple farming in the central region on political grounds.they deny the fact that only the central region has cultivable land and is the breadbasket of malawi.famine in malawi is politically motivated! you give more farm inputs to pple in this region and you will be done with famine.

  12. Am sorry 4 those who r putng acros sily comments,remember a single bracelt does nt jingle.if our fellow Malawian r in dire poverty we nid 2 sypathize wth them.u r there ofcoz bt remember u wea once nobdy.dats de problem dat many malawians r hvng,we fil gud when our nebors r stranded & same wth our political leader they r busy sugarcoatng us.MAY GOD HEAL MALAWI.
