Maize Grain

The Millers Association of Zambia -MAZ- says the country has enough maize grain to last up to the next harvest period.

And Mr. Chintala has welcomed steps taken by govern to restrict maize exports.

He says the measure is meant to stabilize prices and supply of the commodity on the local market.

Mr. Chintala was speaking in an interview with the media recently in Lusaka.

Minister of Agriculture Michael Katambo revealed that government has not signed any Statutory Instrument to ban maize exports but has merely taken administrative measures to maintain food security.

Mr. Katambo said the restriction will remain in force until further notice while emphasizing that movement of maize grain and mealie meal within Zambia is not restricted.
