Central Province will grow more maize, predicts Sydney Mushanga
By Derrick Sinjela
CENTRAL Province Minister Sydney Mushanga is optimistic that the province will record a substantial maize harvest in the 2020/2021 farming season.
And Mr. Mushanga expressed delight in an interview that the distribution of fertiliser and seeds ahead of the 2020/2021 farming season was successfully done and the province did not record any fraud.
Currently serving as Patriotic Front (PF) Bwacha Member of Parliament (MP), Mr. Mushanga says the province has continued receiving positive results as inputs were delivered on time for the first time over a couple of years.
“I am happy that to note that as a province, our farmers will produce enough maize as fertiliser and seeds were delivered on time,” Mr. Mushanga bragged.
And Mr. Mushanga commended the Ministry of Agriculture headed by Mr. Micheal Zondani Katambo, a PF Masaiti MP for making the crop of maize more attractive to farmers, and thus eased the perennial hunger problem.
