Now a Maize

On food crisis, Zimbabwe is having to import in excess of 10,000 tonnes of Maize from South Africaaccording to Wandile Sihlobo, chief economist of the Agricultural Business Chamber of South Africa.

The Grain Millers Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) is working with local road transporters to expedite border-crossing for importing maize into the country. The millers promised to make sure that the country is supplied with enough grain to sustain people throughout the drought, it said it will continue importing grains from Argentina, Ukraine, Mexico and other countries using free funds. They claim to have imported 50 000 tonnes of maize from South Africa.

While GMAZ is presenting a noble front to the world, Zvamaida Murwira and Rudo Muchedzi report that the Grain Marketing Board (GMB) may have been allocating subsidized maize to millers, for further disbursement locally via the black market or by sale to countries like the Democratic Republic of Congo.
