AfDB gives Malawi K12bn to fight hunger

87

The African Development Bank (AfDB) has given Malawi K12 billion Kwacha to help avert the hunger situation in the country.

The donation comes at a time when nearly half of the population is food insecure following low crop yields caused by El-Nino effects in the last farming season.

Finance Minister Goodall Gondwe must be very happy.

Speaking during the official signing of the grant, AfDB country representative Andrew Mwawa said the bank looks forward to prudent management of the grant.

Mwawa added that the bank has since set measures to ensure the money is spent for its intended purpose.

While applauding the gesture by the AfDB, minister of finance Goodall Gondwe said government is to use the money for humanitarian aid to the victims of hunger in the country.

Malawi is expected to buy over 30 thousand metric tons of maize with the AfDB grant to support the needy in the hunger crisis. The donation to the country comes after another one of K700 000 million was made early this year by the bank.

  12. I Cant even waist my time to say thank you for that donation, for I know very much better it has been donated to Mutharika and the crew. while the poor people will still be hungry.

  13. My question is, we have recieved billions of kwachas from well-wishers to avert hunger.
    Where has this money gone since we are told ADMARC sells 50kg bag at K12k in order to repay a loan it got from bank(s)!
    Please may someone clarify.
    With one hand we get donations and on the other we tell ADMARC to borrow for the same purpose and the same alarming huge sum of money.

  14. Shaaa kodi ndalamazo mutamupatsa wina aliyense 1meter kuti wina aliyense agulire chakudya payekha mmesa tikwana, ndipo zambiri zisalaso zothandizila boma kuti asove mavuto ena,koma ndalamazo mungodya nokha bax ngati m’malawi mulibe anthu kkkkk

  15. asowa nazo chochita bcz kuthandiza ndiye akuthandiza koma njalayo ndiye yazaoneni chimanga sichikusika mtengo azingopangila maphwando ali pheee ku state house zidibwe basi nthawi yanu

  16. If this was true it will take longer to sell the admarc maize priced at mk250 which the government borrowed money from banks and has to repay the loan,

    Maybe this will become maizegate
