Senior Chief Kalindawalo of the Nsenga people in Eastern Province has called on Government to expedite the selection of farmers to benefit under the 2018-2019 Farmer Input Support Program – FISP.
The Traditional Leader says the selection of farmers should be done before the onset of the rains to give room for them to prepare for the farming season.
He explains that some farmers experienced challenges during the 2017-2018 season due to late selection of beneficiaries under the FISP.
Senior Chief Kalindawalo was speaking when Neria Investment Limited General Manager Martin Chaikatisha called on him at his palace in Petauke today.
The Traditional Leader also praised Neria Investment, the company that government contracted to deliver fertilizer for transporting the commodity on time.
And Mr. Chaikatisha said his firm has finished distributing fertilizer to Eastern Province.
