Kalaba Districts calls for ngwees
Kalabo, July 4TH , 2013, ZANIS ——– The business community in Kalabo district has complained of the serious shortage of the newly introduced currency coins in circulation in the district.
ZANIS reports that Kalabo Merchants Association (KMA) spokesperson Samuel Masiye confirmed the development in an interview in Kalabo DISTRICT, TODAY.
Mr. Masiye says there was a serious shortage of both one kwacha (K1) and fifty ngwee (50N) coins in Kalabo District.
He explained that this has forced the business community in the area to unintentionally sell their clients other small items whenever change was not available.
Mr. Masiye said that although the business community in the area were fully using the new currency , it was disappointing that were very few coins in circulation.
He appealed to the relevant authorities to quickly move in and address this plight.
