Milanzi Member of Parliament Whiteson Banda has urged people in his constituency not to sale all their maize.
Mr. Banda who recalled how his constituency suffered with hunger last year said there is need for people to be food secure and avoid hunger in their homes.
He said that government through the Food Reserve Agency (FRA) this years has demonstrate good will to its farmers in the district. He said recently he took a tour of FRA satellite deposits in his constituency and found that the selling and buying of maize was going on smoothly.
Mr. Banda said people are so far hopeful that government will pay them in good time in readiness for the 2014-2015 farming season.
He said farmers will be happy if government sticks to its promise of paying farmers ten days after their supply in order to help them prepare for the next farming season.
