Agriculture Minister Wilbur Simuusa has challenged Millers to explain why the price of mealie meal in the country is still high.

Mr. Simuusa said government suspects lack of sincerity and genuineness on the part of the Millers, stating that ordinarily the price of mealie meal should have gone down in view of the bumper harvest the country has recorded.

Mr. Simuusa told Lusaka’s Qfm Radio that this is why government is currently looking into the matter to ascertain why millers have continued to sell mealie meal at very high prices.

Price of mealie meal in some parts of the country is still as high as K75.00 per 25Kg bag of breakfast.
