United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema has told PF to rescind the decision on maize export and ensure food security.
Mr Hichilema said the country is facing unprecedented social, economic and political problems.
He said a caring and credible leadership is the solution to these challenges.
“This takes us to the forgotten agriculture sector by the PF and Mr Edgar Lungu. Most maize fields have dried up a sign that poverty levels will escalate to unprecedented levels in our country and this we stated long before the rain season that mechanisms to support life needed to be in place,” he said.
Mr Hichilema said it is only logical for the PF leadership to rescind their decision of exporting maize and mealie-meal until at such a time.
He said this because it not certain that the people have and will have enough food to even export the surplus.
