Farmers in Kasama threaten to get back their maize sold to FRA
Some small scale farmers who sold their maize to the Food Reserve Agency or FRA in Kasama district have threatened to get back their commodity if government delays further to paying them.
Speaking on behalf of a group of irate farmers who stormed Radio Mano, Charles Malama bemoans the delayed payment describing it as unfortunate.
Mr Malama says it is not fair for farmers who sold their maize to FRA between July and August to remain unpaid up to now.
Mr Malama has since appealed to government to expedite the payment process saying it has been a challenge for farmers to meet their family, social and economic needs due to the delayed payment especially that farming has been their main source of income.
