President HAKAINDE HICHILEMA has assured the nation that prices of mealie meal will stabilise.
President HICHILEMA says government is putting in place measures to support farmers so that they can produce more maize in the next farming season to reduce mealie meal prices.
He says government is committed to ensuring that farmers are supported in every way possible to increase the annual maize yield.
Speaking when he visited patients at Chipata Level One Hospital in Lusaka this afternoon, President HICHILEMA said the price of mealie meal is rising because of low production of maize.
And a Chipata Compound Resident SOMILI MUSHIKO, who was once incarcerated with President HICHILEMA in the Mukobeko Maximum Security Prison in Kabwe, said he is hopeful that President HICHILEMA will address the price of mealie meal.
Mr. MUSHIKO urged Zambians to give the Head of State time to address the matter.
