The president while addressing a politburo meeting on Wednesday urged mealers to shun corruption and said the government was working towards stabilising the economy, The Herald reports.
Addressing the issue of mealie meal which is now scarce in most shops the president said:
Modalities are being worked out to roll out the maize-meal coupon system. I call upon all stakeholders to shun corruption in the distribution and sale of maize-meal and other essential commodities.
Furthermore, we appeal to manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers to desist from wantonly increasing prices of basic commodities. Rest assured that Government is doing all that is possible to stabilise the macro-economic fundamentals
Meanwhile, millers have said they are waiting for the government to review the price of mealie meal for them to release the mealie meal into the market.
