Minister of Labour, Youth, Sports and Manpower Development Henry Mussa has asked farmers in the country not to sale their maize to traders saying they will end up being duped.
Mussa said this in Ndirande Township at a development rally the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) conducted in Blantyre City Central Constituency on Sunday.
“We have a group of foreigners in the country who are duping people; cheating them to sell the entire garden of maize before it’s dry.
“The more that happens, obviously we will be back to square one where we will be suffering with famine and hunger,” he said.
Also speaking at the rally, DPP regional governor for the south Charles Mchacha urged members of the party to work together so that come 2019, the party should not have challenges to retain power.
Mchacha said: “If we want to achieve in 2019, we have to make sure that we are ready and prepared for the elections in the next two years”.
He added that the party has good policies and that is what attracts members from opposition party to join it.
Aaron Sangala Member of Parliament (MP)for Blantyre Malabada ,speaking at the rally on behalf of MP for the area Themba Mkandawire who is outside the country, asked government to construct two community colleges in the township.
“We have a lot of youths with different skills but they lack support and markets to showcase what they are capable of doing,” he said.
