The Rainbow party has called on government to immediately lift the ban on maize and mealie meal exports so that farmers benefit from the ready market in the neighboring countries especially the democratic republic of Congo DRC.
Rainbow Party Deputy National Spokesperson Humphrey Kabwe says the continued ban on maize and mealie meal export is retrogressive to the farmers and the country at large.
He says the ready market should be an encouragement to the farmers to produce more and it should be a source of employment creation as well as a source of revenue for the government.
Mr. Kabwe explains that the investment in farming inputs should be able to bring more revenue to the country and that revenue can only come if exports are encouraged by the government.
