Govt orders millers to get maize directly from GMB

Responding to questions in Senate last week, Agriculture Minister Joseph Made said that Government has ordered millers to get their maize from the Grain Marketing Board and pay directly to Treasury as a means to curb corruption in the buying of maize.

Said Made:

In the past millers used to buy from farmers, but this season we said they cannot do that and they must get their maize from GMB, but they have to pay directly to Treasury. However, we know that some GMB workers are turning back maize saying it has failed the 12,5% moisture content test, but if a farmer suspects that it is connected to corruption they must immediately report the issue to the police.
