Allow me space in your paper to comment on the recent pronouncement by Agriculture minister Given Lubinda on lowering of prices of mealie meal. It’s now clear that many retailers have not heeded the Minister’s call to reduce the price of our staple food. When will the so-called maize bumper harvests translate into cheaper mealie meal? I feel this ‘song’ of maize bumper harvest is mere political rhetoric. I am appealing to Hon. Lubinda to do more. We want real results not theoretical statements.
