The Grain Millers Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) have written to Minister of Transport and Infrastructural Development Joel Biggie Matiza requesting transportation for over 30 000 tonnes of wheat. The wheat is stuck at Beira as the National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ) is failing to transport it. Part of the letter written by GMAZ general manager Lynette Veremu reads,
…In order to immediately commence to stabilise the bread supply, we requested and NRZ committed to bring in at least 50 wagons a day in Harare. Regrettably, only 58 wagons have arrived in Harare since September 16, 2018…We are humbly requesting your esteemed office to intervene and cause NRZ to, in the interests of national food security, deliver 50 wagons a day without fail.
