FRA Public Relations Coordinator John Chipandwe  says the  41 bags were stolen by Vernon Hampondo of Lusaka’s Kanyama Compound,  who has since been sentenced to 3 years imprisonment with hard Labour by the Monze subordinate court.

He Mr Hampondo had attempted to bribe the guards that were stationed at the shed but that his offer was rejected, but decided to break into Pemba shed and stole the maize.
