Responding to questions from journalists after yesterday’s Cabinet meeting, Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Acting Minister Mangaliso Ndlovu said Zimbabwe has enough wheat to cover the next four months.
The country has enough wheat reserves to cover the next four months. There was an issue that needed to be resolved which had to do with pricing from the Grain Marketing Board to the millers and that was effectively dealt with today and we hope GMB will be given the directions. There is no need to look for foreign currency at the moment when it comes to procuring wheat because we have enough wheat. They will be getting wheat from GMB.
The Grain Millers’- Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) yesterday said Zimbabwe’s wheat supply situation has stabilised over the past few months as the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe has been consistent in foreign currency allocations to the sector.
