Kapiri farmers assured of their pending payment

Kapiri Mposhi Patriotic Front (PF) Member of Parliament, Eddie Musonda, has assured small scale farmers in Kapiri Mposhi that government through the Food Reserve Agency (FRA) will soon pay them.

Mr. Musonda has told QFM News that farmers in his constituencies were complaining that the FRA has not paid them their money as promised within fourteen days but their complaints will soon be a thing of the past.

Mr. Musonda says Agriculture Minister Bob Sichinga has assured him that all the farmers that were not paid will be paid very soon.

Mr. Musonda has also assured farmers in his constituency that did not receive the fertilizer that government will next week deliver fertilizer to them.

He explains that the delay in people receiving the fertilizer late was because Kapiri Mposhi was put under the E-voucher system which has not taken off.

He says farmers should not worry because they will receive their bags of fertilizer before the onset of the rains.
