Government has unearthed a scam where some cooperatives in Northern Province who are getting farming inputs on behalf of farmers are under declaring the number of packs to their groups.
Northern Province Permanent Secretary, BERNARD MPUNDU says government has received reports that the cooperatives are stealing inputs from farmers.
He says his has resulted in cases of farmers sharing the small packs of inputs among themselves.
Mr. MPUNDU has since directed District Commissioners in the province to go on the ground and verify the packs that all cooperatives have received during this year’s farming season against what has been declared.
He says government will not spare any cooperative leader who is stealing inputs meant for farmers.
Mr. MPUNDU said this when he addressed the community in Chilubi district.
