Rotten subsidies for rotten maize..

The Food Reserve Agency (FRA) has so far destroyed about 23,978 metric tonnes of rotten maize across the country, as it works its way to the projected 54,235 metric tonnes earmarked for destruction countrywide. The agency recently destroyed huge stockpiles of rotten maize in Mpongwe, Mumbwa and Lufwanyama in its quest to create storage space for the new crop marketing season. A lot of tax payer funds continue to be wasted thanks to the current rotten maize marketing policy previously ushered in by the MMD administration who regarded it a key plank of their rural "control" program.
