Government Unleashes Monitors To Track The Movement And Selling Of Subsided Mealie-Meal

The government has resorted to hiring people to track the movement of subsidised mealie-meal amid reports that some retailers are abusing the facility in ways more than one, Sunday News reports.

According to the Industry and Commerce Minister Nzenza, the ministry and CZI are investigating retailers, if there are any disparities the retailer will be blacklisted:

We are working together with the ministry to monitor the movement of mealie-meal, roller meal to be specific from the time it leaves the miller up to the time the retailer receives it. So, we are working on a joint programme where we also engage grain millers. 

Also, on our part basically what we will be doing we will also visit some millers to check on accountability and also visit some of the retailers and wholesalers to check on transparency, on how they are selling the mealie meal to the public

The government subsidised mealie meal after consumers complained about the price of mealie meal late last year.
