Farmers in Mporokoso’s Chitoshi satellite depot are up in arms against the PF government over the delay to pay them for the maize they supplied to the Food Reserve Agency (FRA).
Irate farmers charged that it is inconsiderate for the government to continue holding to their money when they need to buy farm inputs for 2014- 2015 farming season.
Farmers added that they have even failed to pay for their children’s school requirements due to lack of funds.
They appealed to PF government to prioritize farming by ensuring that farmers are well looked at.
Out of 210 farmers from Chitoshi satellite who supplied Maize to the Food Reserve Agency only 24 farmers have received their dues.
